5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling & Essential read on the Eritrean liberation movement, 16 Mar 2012
This review is from: Against All Odds: A Chronicle of the Eritrean Revolution (Paperback)
Being an Eritrean who was born and brought up in Europe, I got this book in an attempt to educate myself about the 30 year old guerilla movement that led to the independence of Eritrea. Dan Connell unravels the Eritrean liberation movement in a very personal and heartfelt way that goes beyond the hard facts of the military story that has been portrayed by so many before. In this book you encounter the average Eritrean and their story during the tough times of the war. Their commitment, dedication, tenacity and strong will power shines through and highlights the superhuman effort of the Eritrean people's David & Goliat struggle against its oppressor Ethiopia and the superpowers of the world (Soviet, US, Israel etc..)....Dan Connell has written a truly impressive book on the Eritrean struggle for freedom, based on years and years spent in the area during the war, this is an essential read about Black Africa's most ingenious society.
