Back to Square one
1976 – 1979
by Tekeste Fekadu

Journey From Nakfa to NakfaThe Journey from Nakfa to Nakfa is about liberating the major towns of Eritrea only to lose them at the end with the exception of Nakfa. The liberation started with Nakfa in 1976 and reached the gates of Asmara: from the siege of Nakfa to the siege of Asmara. The setback was due to the massive intervention of the Soviet Union and its allies. The Liberation Fronts, made the Historical Strategic Withdrawal in order to save the revolution.
The Back to Square One did not mean going back to the situation of 1976, but returning geographically to Nakfa with rich political, social, economical and military experience
