The General was a Viceroy of The Italian Imperial government of the brutal fascist prime minister Benito Mussolini that occupied Ethiopia on May 5, 1936. The fascist Italians were later defeated by the strong resistance made against them by the valiant patriots and the resilient people of Ethiopia after 5 years to the day they entered the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa on May 5, 1941. Emperor Haile Silassie I also returned to his throne on that same day ending Italy’s 2nd attempt to colonize Ethiopia.
