The Future That Vanished: A Biafra Story

Xlibris Corporation, 30 juil. 2009 - 236 pages
In Colonial Africa, a British Commodore in command of the newly formed Royal Nigerian Navy in the late 50s recognizes the future potential of a young man recruited as a cadet and proceeds to lay down a growth plan for him. The story recounts the making of a career naval officer in the prestigious Royal Naval College in England and in the Indian Navy as the young man acquits himself honorably by rising to expectations. However, politically motivated events interrupt the promising future. A summary of the political history of Nigeria enables the reader to understand the events that led to the secession of Biafra. The authors war diary is used to narrate the part played by the Biafra Navy during the civil war that ensued and after it was all over.
