The Shebelle Juba and Tana conquest that led our troops to Meru almost Nairobi. This is extremely niche Somali history but is likely our peak military expansion only comparable with Axmed Gureys Ethiopian expansion.
Another niche is the rebel and close friend of the Sayid Sh.Xasan Barsane who fought the italians in the south I wonder if anyone recorded his poems or sayings I would like to read them. Its amazing that they both met in Mecca and decided to free there country they are both without any doubt the greatest of Somali figures since our medieval period.
To be fair we were always considerably outnumbered by Ethiopians, it was always a David vs Goliath conflict between us and the Abyssinians, it's why the Adal war and Ogaden War are placed in such a high pedestal in Somali folklore.Everyone, little to no records of our own, foreigners have to tell our own "history" for us and we are completely overshadowed by Ethiopia's history.
