In October 1935, Fascist Italy invaded independent Ethiopia. The Ethiopians were no match for the well-armed and airborne Italians; they needed to seek outside help. This book unravels the complex and often bizarre international diplomatic situation and the near chaos inside the country as mercenaries of every description, from German Nazis to Zulu kings, answered Emperor Haile Selassie’s call to arms. Christopher Othen tells the story of how this ragtag foreign legion fought to save Ethiopia from Fascism.
