To my english ears, the name sounds awkward. It would flow better, to me, as the Ethiopian War of Liberation BoArthur

Gotta agree. Zahir 16:36, 25 October 2005 (PDT)
Even if the name of the war in Ethiopia itself is simply "Liberation War"? --IJzeren Jan 22:30, 25 October 2005 (PDT)
Different countries call things different things. The Soviet Union called WW2 the "Great Patriotic War" while the US calls the "War of American Empire" the "Mexican-American War." I've known folks to get into a huff if you call the American Civil War just that (they insist on "War Between The States"). Methinks BoArthur and Deiniol were referring to how English-speaking historians outside Ethiopa tend to label the conflict. I know that is what I meant. Zahir 22:35, 25 October 2005 (PDT)

Maybe. Or maybe in the west it would be called more like just "Ethiopian front of Second Great War", or "War of Ethiopia"; as well it could be so that both Ethipians an dothers would call it e.g. "Anticolonialist War"; howeverwesterners would then use "Ethiopian front of second great war" more frequently in that case.Abdul-aziz 03:42, 26 October 2005 (PDT)

Who was the ethiopian leader during this period? I think his name is missing on this article, and deserves to be mentioned.--Pedromoderno 18:36, 15 August 2006 (PDT)

The emperors are mentioned in the Ethiopian history at Ethiopia article, but the names were disputed in the talk page there with a suggestion to change them into people from the original dynasty of the Ethiopian emperors, so for now I have not added name of the emperor in this article as no QSS name exists for now.

Doesn't some of this violate what is QSS vis-a-vis Egypt? I'm inclined to this this would actually be something of an improvement, but is the difference too much to reconcile? Zahir 07:40, 20 March 2006 (PST)

In article Egypt there is written "Following the completion of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became an important world transportation hub, but also fell heavily into debt. Ostensibly to protect its investments, the Federated Kingdoms seized control of Egypt's government in 1882, but nominal allegiance to the Ottoman Empire continued until 1914. Partially independent from the FK in 1922, Egypt acquired full sovereignty following the Second Great War under Khedive Ismail II.". There is not written anything in particular about what was the situation of Egypt during the Second Great War. It as well says that Egypt was partially independent since 1922, which is how is currently explained in this article (that is, it is explained that Egypt has independent policy, but still relies heavily on defense). And this article is not yet completed, in the end the end in Egypt would be as explained in the Egypt article (attaining full sovereignity). I am still not fully decided on werether to continue on this particular line of events however as is explained now, or on a slightly different one (where no peace treaty was signed with Egypt and the Republic of Egypt was established in the south of the country, while later in 1947 or so the Federated Kingdoms overran the area).

Tiny detail--the "King" of Egypt is in fact the Khedive. Such a troubled series of events as described here certainly helps explain the Nasserite coup a few years after the end of GWII. Zahir 11:57, 20 March 2006 (PST)


The Socotra idea is okay... but Socotra is an FK territory! Dalmatinac 03:15, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

The Ethiopian War and the Danubian protectorates

I've sent a message to the conculture list on this subject, as I think this needs to be discussed there instead of here. Dalmatinac 03:52, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Just so it's available to all: Post No. 35231 started was the start of the discussion, and as far as I can tell, it never reached a conclusion and is still in limbo. Benkarnell 20:27, 13 April 2012 (PDT)
