Ethiopia's holy city, and eventually he commanded a bomber that set out a few days ago for Add! Rassi, deep in the "Takkaze. He had completed his mission under heavy rifle and machine gun fire from the ground, was well started back when the plane caught fire. A bullet had broken the exhaust pipe, turned it so it poured its flame on to the body of the plane. The rest is simple. The four men in the plane had parachutes, but someone had to fly the thing while the others .lumped. Colonel Oliveti ordered the two enlisted men to bail out. They were near the Italian lines, near "Hill 21W in front of Aksum. first day's objective in the ip.ccnt drive that shattered Ras Imru's army. Clinih Over Side. They went over the side. That left Colonel Oliveti and a captain who was co-pilot. The captain insisted the colonel jump out, the colonel insisted that the captain go first. The colonel outranked the captain. The captain had to obey orders. The captain jumped out. landed safely, the colonel stayed with the plane, then far gone in flames. It crashed just in front of "Hill 2140." There wasn't much left of a very brave soldier, the colonel.
