Italy Invades Ethiopia
The Italians had claimed Ethiopia as their territory. With economic conditions worsening at home, Mussolini needed to take actions that would distract the Italians people. In 1936, the Italians fought against poorly-armed Ethiopian troops in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia's capital). The League of Nations censured Italy, but that comprised the extent of world reaction.
