Like soldiers from anywhere else, it depends on the front. Those sent to Russia had it perhaps hardest of any forces in the European theater, as they were sent without adequate supplies (and unlike the Germans, they were also sent without adequate weaponry or training - with many fighting with outmoded rifles and no armored units). Those fighting in France or Greece likely had comparable experiences to French forces, and those fighting in Africa had identical experiences to the Germans in the same region once Rommel arrived, though under Graziani exclusively they suffered many early defeats due to the lack of mechanized and armored units, despite a massive numerical advantage. The refusal to deploy gas against other Europeans also contributed to Italian plight in Africa.
