Shittiest army ever?

Since I've talked about shitty armies a bit, what's your shittiest army (10 brigade max)? There have to be some 9k armies there with poor morale and leadership of which the Italians would be proud.

Yeah, not familiar with that author, but since the Fall of Rome (something I am familiar with and have read Edward Gibbon's three volumes "Decline and Fall"), Italy has not demonstrated a lot of moxey on the battlefield.  If memory serves, they were asked by the Axis to take Ethiopia, and that turned out to be quite a struggle.

Reminds me of the joke:
Question: How many Frenchmen does it take to defend Paris?
Answer:  No one knows - it's never been tried.
