Please do your job
After his daughter talked to Britain and got told that they wouldn't interfere, Mussolini moved his troops into Abyssinia.
Italy used planes, tanks, and artillery against the poorly equipped Abyssinians. They also used chemical weapons, against war laws that were created years ago.
Haile Selassie attempted to appeal to the League, but they didn't want to do anything in case Italy didn't ally with them against Nazi Germany.
Italy eventually succeeded in taking Addis Ababa and exiling the Abyssinian leader, Haile Selassie.
