The Port Harcourt Volunteer: The Nigeria-Biafra War from the Perspective of a Young Combatant on the Biafran Side.

Length: 125 pages1 hour


As a young combatant in the Nigeria-Biafra war, I came face to face with death several times and somehow stayed alive. I lost several of my friends and fellow combatants. In fact, the Nigeria-Biafra war saw many families scattered with many lost, never to be seen again. While there have been several accounts of this terrible war which caused untold hardship to the Igbos, during and after the war, this book is a presentation of these facts from the side of someone who actually fought the war and lived to talk about it.

Many have opined that the Biafra war was a result of the ambition of one man - Odimegwu Ojukwu; but nothing can be farther from the truth than this. The war was inevitable and for someone like me who fought on the Biafra side, it was a very bloody experience that must not be allowed to occur again.
