The Italian-Ethiopian War: Africa In World Affairs

History Documentaries

The short-lived, but brutal Italian-Ethiopian War leads to an examination of Italian Fascism, the character of Mussolini and how he came to power. Mussolini ruled with apparent effectiveness and was hailed by leaders of the anti-Communist world, until his dreams of an empire led him to invade Ethiopia. The incident was one of the chief episodes paving the way for World War II.
