The book tells of one of the most harrowing periods in modern Africa, setting out the characters and personalities that made Africa what it is. It gives the background to a political move that precipitated the greatest suffering Nigeria has known.
Reviewer’s Comments: Reading this book gives one a good understanding of the real Africa. The descriptions of the people with whom the author came in contact are the good ‘salt of the earth’ people struggling to find their way through the confusion and the propaganda, the followers who leap on the bandwagon and ride with the wave of oppression to their own doom, the expatriates who are the mainstay of the economy and, at the same time, the whipping boys for the politicians seeking to drive up public sentiment for their own causes.
If you desire to understand the reasons for why Africa has failed to take its place in the fellowship of nations, you must read this book
