On the road to ADDIS
ABABA, ETHIOPIA, 2 March 1936: The most cowardly war in history was drawing to
its inevitable close as Mussolini's legions closed in on the Ethiopian
capital of Addis Ababa. Despite the odds, many tribesman were
waging a heroic struggle behind the Italian lines, conducting
daily attacks against the enemy rear. In one such skirmish, an
Italian armored column was escorting several supply vehicles when
partisans were spotted on a hill ahead, deployed for the attack.
Tankettes swept the hillside with machine gun fire upon sighting
the Ethiopian partisans. The tribesmen responded in kind, spraying
the Italian column with machine gun fire. The leading armored
car was caught in a crossfire between ATR and machine gun fire,
hit repeatedly, and soon caught fire. The AFVs and Bersaglieri
steadily pushed back the Ethiopian irregulars despite the initial
burst of fire. Suddenly, out of the early dawn sun erupted a wave
of camel riding cavalry. Two more Italian armored cars moved forward
to deal with this new threat and the slaughter began; only a handful
of partisans broke through to the convoy. The survivors soon faded
away into the distance while the battered convoy regrouped and
continued on its way.
