The last thing that the late, great journalist W. F. 'Bill' Deedes wrote was the foreword to this book. He knew that the story of the Ethiopians who fought against a modern European army prepared to use chemical weapons against them, initially with little more than spears and muskets, deserved to be told. Partly through their courageous efforts, the Allies achieved a swift victory in East Africa in World War II and kept the sea route to the East open.
