Messe was a much better commander. His memoirs are available--but not in English. He understood very well the ridiculous decision to send Italian troops to Russia at all and was a constant thorn in Mussolinis side. Eventually he resigned in discust but the Germans thought highly enough of him to make him the Only Italian General ever to have German troops subordinated to his command and he was one of only 9 Italians to be awarded the Knights Cross.
