The Battle of Gondar was the final defeat of Italian forces in Ethiopia during the Second World War. The battle took place in 1941 when a garrison of some 40,000 Italians under general Nasi were attacked by two brigades of the 12th African Division. Italian troops holding the only two mountain passes to the town were starved into surrendering, and then the Italian garrison in the town was forced to surrender after African troops gained control of the heights which overlooked the Italian positions and the Kenya Armoured Car Regiment penetrated the outskirts of the town.
