    Just a little accuracy. Italy never invaded or colonised Ethiopia. They only occupied the capital city of Addis Ababa. Ask any Ethiopian - they are quite proud of this fact.... Ethiopia is the only African country to never be colonised.

      What you are talking about? Over 26000 French soilders was evacuated with British soldiers at D-day The reason France was invaded so quickly by the Nazis was because Of failure of leadership, both at the military and the political level. The army of France was not only poorly led but had been equipped with inferior arms and equipment. Nothing to do with the British.
