Abstract:The centennial celebration of the victory of Ethiopia over Italy at Dogali in February 1987 revived the history and memory of a battle which had somehow slipped into oblivion as quickly as it was fought. The author asserts that the Ethiopian victory at Dogali in 1887 represents the first successful resistance to European colonialism in northeast Africa and that, as such, its historical significance has been immense. Its impact in history was twofold: on the international level it cracked the Triple Alliance which was signed by Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy in May 1882; on the national or regional level, Dogali initiated a campaign for liberty and sovereignty which was to last for decades.
