Abyssinian Patchwork.


Of all the “side shows” in World War Two the campaign in Abyssinia is the least known and most neglected.The author went all through the Ayssinian campaigh as the representative of the Ministry of Information.This book is called “abyssinian Patchwork”because it deals with the war in East Africa,and because it is an affair of variegated colours,lights and shades.It consists of about 100 contributions, written or told by British Officers.West African Native Sergeants.African Pilots, and transport drivers, their individual contributions make up this facinating story.
