The 41 Infantry Division Firenze was a Infantry Division of the Italian Army during World War II. The Firenze Division took part in the Italian invasion of France and later the Greco-Italian War as part of the Army Group Reserve. It also took part in the Invasion of Yugoslavia. It remained in Yugoslavia as an occupation force in Montenegro until July 1941. It was then transferred to Albania where it remained until the Italian surrender to the Allies in September 1943. Following the surrender a number of men from the division joined the Yugoslav Partisans and the Albanian Partisans. The 92. CCNN Legion continued to serve with the German forces.[1]
