Caesar in Abyssinia

By G. L. Steer
Little, Brown, 1936
405 pp. $3.00

One of the most revealing accounts of the Ethiopian War that we are likely to have. The author, London Times correspondent with the Ethiopians, explains very clearly the causes for Haile Selassie's defeat, of which the most important were the embargo on arms and the Ethiopian tradition of fighting in masses. Italian planes and poision gas also played decisive rôles.
