BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : ITALIAN - ABYSSINIAN WAR - WERE BLACK PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN THERE THOUSANDs :

The Italian - Abyssinian war was a colonial war that was fought between the armies of the Kingdom of Italy and the armed forces of Abyssinian in May 1936. The war resulted in the military occupation of Ethiopia and the annexation into the newly created colony of Italian East Africa.  Politically the war is best remembered for exposing the inherent weakness of The League Of Nation. Like the Mukden Incident in 1931, the Abyssinia crisis in 1938 is often seen as a clear example of the ineffectiveness of the League of Nation.  Both Italy and Ethiopia were members of the League of Nation and yet the League was unable to control Italy and protect Ethiopia when Italy clearly violated the League own Article. The positive out come for the Italians coincided with the zenith of the International popularity of the Dictator Benito Mussolini Fascist Regime.

In a phase called the age of consensus during which foreign leaders praised him for him forces. for his achievements. Historian like James Burgwgn called the victory of Mussolini a capital achievement but he was forced to destroy him and Fascist Italy in world war two. Indeed this Italian victory that brought the creative Italian Empire with Ethiopia included, was short as Abyssinia regained its independence only five years later during world war II at the end of the East African campaign with the help of allied forces. Britain and France wanted to keep the Italian as allies against Germany in case there was a war so kept quiet as Italy built up it forces on the Ethiopia boarder.
