The essay analyses the different strategies adopted by Italy to solve the problem of military recruitment in Western Libya. The solutions adopted by Italy were twofold: the creation of irregular units, namely armed groups recruited locally and led by Tripolitanian notables; the other solution was the enlistment of individuals in the colonial army. In addition to the recruitment strategies, the essay examines the issue of military justice through the review of the sentences issued by the war courts of Tripoli.
