A book about the Nigerian civil war from the point of view of the Biafrian rebels. I never even knew about this civil war. The book was very informative. This was the war where people in the US started telling their kids to eat dinner because there were starving children in Africa. And it gave a very good look into the mentality of foreigners toward the Nigerian issue as well as the racial, religious and ethnic divisions within the country itself. Well done.
