Adowa is a battalion-level wargame covering the worst defeat suffered by a European power in Africa.
Adowa is the first big defeat of an European power in Africa. Ethiopian Emperor Menelik II managed to defeat an Italian army through a combination of bravery, deficiencies in the Italian chain of command, and well exploited chances during the battle. The Italian Army fielded Italian infantry battalions, veteran Ascari battalions, and less experienced native units like OculÃ¨-Cusai bands and mobile militia. The Ethiopian Army was made of provincial armies made up of feudal militia and led by a Ras (Warlord).
