The Battle of Amba Alagi was fought in May 1941, during World War II, part of the East African Campaign.After the Italian defeat at Keren in April 1941, Prince Amedeo, Duke of Aosta withdrew his forces to the mountain stronghold at Amba Alagi. The mountain had galleries carved into the rock to protect the defending troops and hold ample ammunition and stores and the Italian troops thought themselves to be impregnable.

  • La Batalla de Amba Alagi se libró en mayo de 1941, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, formando así parte de la Campaña de África Oriental. Los Aliados contaron siempre con la delantera, ya que se produjo un retroceso italiano por la escasez de munición, víveres y la incapacidad de plantar cara a un contingente cuatro veces mayor que el suyo. La batalla derivó en la captura del Príncipe Amedeo, Duque de Aosta, que estaba al mando de las tropas italianas.
