At five am on the 3rd of October 1935 Italian forces crossed into Abyssinia, modern-day Ethiopia, signaling the start of the Second Italian-Abyssinian War.

The war’s outcome would not only change the face of Africa but the political rifts it caused between the fascist nations and the democratic nations would contribute to the beginning of the most devastating conflict the human race has ever known, the Second World War.
