Italians in the Soviet Union

I always had the image of rapid and total collapse by the Italians when the Soviet army attacked them, but reading this it took 11 days to defeat them. Considering their complete lack of air cover, very out of date tanks that were frozen, almost no anti tank guns of use, and severely out numbered, I would say they put up a pretty good fight.
