Two manuscripts in one book:


  • History of Ethiopia: A Captivating Guide to Ethiopian History
  • The Italian Invasion of Ethiopia: A Captivating Guide to Mussolini's War in Abyssinia


Ethiopia has a long history. It boasts one of the longest-running continuous civilizations on the planet; even the origins of humanity have been traced back to Ethiopia. Ethiopian kingdoms date back to the days of the Bible, and mentions of Ethiopian monarchs can be found all throughout the historical record.


In the first part of this book, you will discover:


  • Ethiopia's origin and the legendary Queen of Sheba
  • The Aksumite Empire and the adoption of Christianity
  • Ethiopia's Solomonic line-King Solomon to Haile Selassie
  • The brief intermission of the Zagwe dynasty
  • Ethiopian emperors and how they ruled
  • Ethiopia's communist takeover
  • Modern Ethiopia


Although the Ethiopians had beaten the Italians at their own game in the 1898 Battle of Adwa, when Italian armored divisions began pouring out of Italian-controlled Eritrea in 1935, the situation seemed almost impossible to overcome. This was not 1898 when the Italians were ill-equipped and ill-advised in their undertakings. The Italians had made sure they were guaranteed the upper hand. They had the best tanks and the best aircraft they could get their hands on.


In the second part of this book, you will learn about:


  • The geopolitical background before the invasion
  • How the invasion was planned and what it entailed
  • The international role played by the League of Nations
  • The major battles fought during the Second Italo-Ethiopian War
  • The exile of Haile Selassie and how he continued to take a stand in exile
  • The Italian occupation of Ethiopia
  • The atrocities the Italians committed
  • What happened to Ethiopia
  • And much more
