Description

Africa's oldest nation also became the first to free itself from colonial domination. The film begins with the Ethiopian victory over the Italians in 1896 at the Battle of Adowa, a victory that paved the way for Emperor Menelik's modernization program (a telephone network, railways and an educational system.) Using photo archives and newsreels the producers document the reign of Haile Selassie, the Mussolini invasion and Italian occupation, and the road to independence.
