At the Battle of Adwa in 1896 the Ethiopians defeated the colonial Italian forces thus establishing themselves as the one African country which never submitted to European imperialism. The Italians retreated into Eritrea but in 1936 they came again through this pass and invaded Ethiopia where they remained until 1941.
