Yugoslavie and Greece: The balkan campaign
The Italians tried to establish themselves by attacking the Greeks, however they are unsuccessful because they chose a bad time of the year in October. The germans had to bail out the Italians with Operation Marita and Operation punishment. Eventually, they are re-succesful in taking over Greece but it delays operation Barbarossa.
