In 1936, the Italian Fascist invaders drove Emperor Haile Selassie from his throne in Adis Ababa, Ethiopia. Five years later to the day, he returned to the city after the Italians had been driven out by African and British forces. This book recounts the military history of those years, describing the initial invasion and the events that led to the reversal. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
