This book charts the 21-year (1911-1932) history of Libyan resistance against Italian invasion. It looks at the subject from a variety of angles, including military, socio-economic and also human. It gives a large place to the causes that incited the Italians to invade; and as it goes through the invasion, it highlights its extremely brutal character. The main focus is on the remarkable stand by the Libyans, who against a far more numerous enemy, far better armed with all the means of modern warfare, managed to put up possibly the longest and surely the costliest resistance (in proportion to their total population) to any invader in history. The Libyan war for liberation is indeed the best illustration in history of bravery and sacrifice for higher ideals than the self. This book covers this little known and yet remarkable phase in history.
