This review is from: Biafra Story: The Making of an African Legend (Paperback)
i couldn't drop the book for a minute till i finished it. it is very intriguing to say the least, having to read an account of the Nigerian civil war from a western, non pro-government account. from a journalist who was actually present in the field is definitely refreshing.
As a Nigerian who was born after the war and has only known and been taught the government version of the accounts of the war, "Biafra story", is really revealing and thought provoking. the book clearly illustrates what valour and courage means. Ojukwu- the leader of the Biafra nation showcase such self-sacrificing, public-spirited that can't, after 40 years, be found in any African leader past or present.
The book is a must read for every Nigerian.
