The most cowardly war in history was drawing to its inevitable close as Mussolini's legions closed in on the Ethiopian capital of Addis Abada. Despite the odds, many tribesmen 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.
