    The Battle of Adwa PDF EPUB ´ The BattleeBook battle ebok, adwa epub, The Battle mobile, The Battle of Adwa PDFAn excellent account of the Ethiopian victory by native forces under the command of Emperor Menelik over the Italian forces at Adwa in 1896 The author provides lots of interesting details on how the Italians came to be in Ethiopia and how natives forces managed to defeat a modern European army on the field of combat For the first time in Africa's history a native force had won a war against an occupying European country At times the author diverges from his narrative with little forays into interesting bits of history as in the local practice of the castration of defeated foes or the social history of the un
