ABSTRACT
This article provides an historical overview of the Ethiopian Civil War, with particular focus on the Mengistu Regime of 1974 through 1991. The military regime initiated the Red Terror, a violent campaign that often targeted Eritrean secessionists. The situation was worsened by severe famine and drought in the mid-1980s. Rebel groups eventually made substantial gains against Mengistu Haile Mariam, and transitional governments were set up in 1991.
