  1. Ethiopian-Eritrean Wars, Volume 2 Eritrean War of Independence, 1988-1991 & Badme War 1998-2001 ISBN : 9781912390304 Helion & Company via Casemate UK It would seem depressing that the area of Ethiopia and Eritrea has seen more than its fair share of conflict and misery over the years. After Italian occupation during WWII Ethiopia claimed it as part of its territory, which was cemented after the UN federated it to Ethiopia in 1950. After 9 years Haile Selassie dissolved the federation and annexed Eritrea triggering a 30 year war of independence. The main for for Eritrea in was the Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF). Thought like many such organisations the world over, infighting and internal conflict this became the Eritrean People Liberation Front (EPLF) . Even after Haile Selassie was overthrown in a coup and the region came under the influence of the Soviet Bloc the civil war continued. The EPLF had all but driven the Ethiopians out of Eritrea by 1977 when Somalia invaded Ethiopia to split their army. However massive intervention from Cuban & Yemeni forces allowed Ethiopia to regain the initiative and push back the EPLF. Soviet support ended though in at the end of the 1980s. Then the EPLF was able to join forces with other anti Marxist organisation to move against the Ethiopian Army. The US lead by former President Carter worked to end the conflict through peace talks, this lead to a peace agreement in 1989. This though did not last, however with the fall of the main Ethiopian regime in 1991 this lead to talks to establish a transitional government in Addis Ababa which the EPLF attended as an observer. In 1993 Eritrea was able to hold an Independence vote which came in at 99.83% in favour. In 1993 the UN formally admitted Eritrea as a country. Following this the military in Eritrea was built up and re-organised. There then followed to Badme War between Ethiopia & Eritrea following a series of limited armed incidents which resulted in Eritrean officials being killed near the town of Badme in 1998. Sadly it seems these two countries find it had to co-exist. The book looks at the forces on both sides of the conflict, some history of the region and how the main battles were fought. This volume is A4 soft back in format and 72 pages. There are black and white photographs throughout with maps, and 8 pages of colour profiles. Conclusion This book should provide readers with a more complete understanding of the of the conflict in Eritrea from 1988 to 2001. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
