The Liberation Campaign of 1940-1941 was not only an event of unique importance in Ethiopia's age-old history, but also, more widely, a major 'turning-point' in World War II: the conflict fought out in East Africa between the Allies and the Axis Powers. The campaign, historically speaking, was no less significant as a decisive act in the overall drama of Africa's liberation from European colonial rule, and the ending of the foreign-imposed Scramble for Africa. This remarkable book provides a valuable account of how these momentous events appeared to an eyewitness of the time.
