Researching relative's WW II Italian military service?


I have an uncle who died during Italy's WW II incursion into Russia. I have no details of the military unit he was in.

Is it possible to:

  1. establish the miltary unit my uncle served under?
  2. identify the area that it was sent to?
  3. research the names of those who died in that specific campaign?

Any reference to relevant on line web sites would be good, otherwise any references to relevant Italian archives would also be good.

1Hi, welcome to G&FH.SE! Could you add to your question how you know that your uncle died in WW2? Is this oral history which has been passed down in the family? – Jan Murphy – 2018-05-29T08:52:09.893
