Translation: The five continents will tremble before fascist power. Thou shalt conquer and possess Abyssinia!
Original poster promoting Mussolini's invasion of Al-Habash, the horn of Africa. This is a really interesting look at wartime propaganda from fascist regimes, as well as the state of geography in the early 1900s.
