The Second Italo-Ethiopian War, also referred to as the Second Italo-Abyssinian War, was a colonial war from 3 October 1935 until 1939, despite the Italian claim to have defeated Ethiopia by 5 May 1936, the date of the capture of Addis Ababa. The war was fought between the armed forces of the Kingdom of Italy and those of the Ethiopian Empire (also known as Abyssinia).
The Abyssinian ambulance was the ambulance that Sweden sent to the war in 1935 to help wounded people. On December 30, 1935, the ambulance camp was bombed by Italian fighter aircraft. The healthcare practitioner Gunnar Lundström was killed and the head of the ambulance doctor, Dr. Fride Hylander, was severely injured. Hylander flew by Carl Gustaf von Rosen to Addis Ababa for care. 28 of the total 60 local staff were killed in the attack
