Menelik confronted the Italians, angering Rome, which ordered the Italian governor of Eritrea, General Oreste Baratieri to retaliate.
His body was found face-down in Mota cave, which is situated in the highlands in the southern part of the country.Instead of attacking, as Baratieri hoped he would, Menelik concentrated his forces at Adwa and waited.While both sides waited for the other to attack throughout February 1896, supplies started to run out for both.At the end of the battle, 289 Italian officers, 2,918 European soldiers, and about 2,000 Eritreans, fighting for the Italians, were dead.
