La Preparazione E Le Prime Operazioni

By Emilio De Bono
Istituto Nazionale Fascista di Cultura, 1937
215 pp. $0.00

An important and in some respects amazing book. The first commander-in-chief of the Italian armies in the recent war against Ethiopia makes numerous interesting revelations and publishes several highly illuminating documents concerning the origins and the early conduct of the operations. We learn, for instance, that as early as 1933 Mussolini had decided to solve the Ethiopian question not later than 1936. Marshal De Bono's book is one of the most candid that have come out of Italy since the Fascist Revolution. It opens with an introduction by Il Duce and contains many illustrations.
