Given the centrality of Ojukwu in the history of Nigeria, this book is at once the story of a courageous soldier, a record of the story of a courageous soldier, a record of the African continent's bloodiest attempt at secession, and a statement on the texture of the relations between former biafrans and the rest of the their countrymen and women. This new edition comes with more pictures, especially of Ojukwu's funeral and aspects of his family life previously outside public purview.

Strikingly, the passage of time has coalesced both old and new materials in this volume into a critical question on Nigeria's raison d'etre. It bears repetition to aver that, 'No one intent on understanding Nigeria and its multifaceted challenges can afford to ignore this book."
