Hurst Publishers (in collaboration with Oxford University Press) has published a new book on the Biafra v Nigeria civil war called: “Surviving Biafra: A Nigerwife’s Story“. The book can be bought with a 25% discount by using the code “BIAFRA25”.
Unlike many other books on Biafra (many of which are written by protagonist generals on either side of the war), this book is different because it is written by: (a) a woman, and (b) by someone who was not a combatant, but rather a civilian Westerner married to a Nigerian. You can read a summary of the book at the link above.
For those of you that are e-book fans, you can now buy my book Soldiers of Fortune: a History of Nigeria (1983-1993) and read it on your mobile phone via Okadabooks at the link below. You can read a sample chapter or two, or download the entire book for only $7.54.
You can read a review of Soldiers of Fortune here.
