Pietro Badoglio
Non posso abbandonarmi a voli di fantasia perché ci? ? contrario alla mia natura.
Badoglio quotes
Io i miei nemici li strangolo lentamente col guanto di velluto.
Badoglio
If I announce the armistice and the Americans don't send sufficient reinforcements and don't land near Rome, the Germans will seize the city and put in a puppet fascist government.




Badoglio Pietro quotes
C'? un veleno che corrode le dittature: l'incenso. La rovina delle dittature sono i ras osannanti.
Badoglio Pietro
Sir, give me a single battalion of the Royal Carabineers and I will drive these upstarts into the sea.
Pietro Badoglio quotes
Io ho conquistato all'Italia un impero e Mussolini l'ha buttato via.
Pietro Badoglio
When Mussolini decided on war he did not take my advice or that of any other Army chief. In August 1939 the Duce had not been so sure about the invincibility of the Germans, and he told us that he had sought to persuade Hitler not to act.
Badoglio Pietro quotes
Il soldato ? come il monaco, per cui l'ordine si chiama obbedienza.
Badoglio
The Germans will make a few scattered attacks, then go away. The Romans will enjoy a fine September.
Badoglio Pietro
Non sono mai stato un generale ribelle e l'ho dimostrato sino all'ultimo.
Pietro Badoglio
By this act, all ties with the dreadful past are broken, and my government will be proud to be able to march with you on to the inevitable victory.




Pietro Badoglio quotes
I think if we call in the experts we can draw up the full scheme, with the rallying points arranged.
Pietro Badoglio
Io sono un militare e non so nulla di correnti politiche.
Badoglio quotes
Militarily it was impossible to invade with the dispositions we had made. We had only seven divisions in Albania. Two of them were necessary to hold the Albanian population from going into revolt. Two others were in reserve. That left us three divisions with which to undertake an offensive. Against us, the Greeks disposed of fifteen divisions. We might have been able to undertake an offensive had those figures been reversed.
Badoglio Pietro
(A Mussolini) Vostra Eccellenza pu? contare ora e sempre sulla mia completa e assoluta devozione.
Badoglio Pietro quotes
Se orgoglio ho io, ? quello di aver sempre servito fedelmente e con devozione illimitata voi, Duce.
