His front-page accountMoreIn April 1976, Dan Connell slipped into Eritreas besieged capital, Asmara, where he witnessed the assassination of a top-ranking Ethiopian official and its bloody aftermath—the summary execution of dozens of innocent civilians.

His front-page account in The Washington Post broke Ethiopias long-standing information blockade. Connell went on to write about the radical social transformation underway in guerrilla-held areas, the near defeat of Ethiopias American-backed army, the intervention of the Soviet Union, the liberation movements strategic retreat, the onset of famine, the final Eritrean victory, the effort to reconstruct and develop the war-ravaged new state, the renewal of fighting with Ethiopia, and the economic and political setbacks that followed.Often his was the only voice outsiders heard or read on events in Eritrea.This two-volume collection of Connells writings, spanning a quarter-century, recounts the experience of Eritreas protracted independence war and its postliberation transition with vivid eyewitness imagery and insightful analysis.

New introductions to each thematic section set the context—personal and political—for the reportage. The anthology provides a unique record of the birth of this culturally diverse new nation, the evolution of the political movement that led it, and the challenges faced by the reporter who covered it.
