THE TRAGIC YEARS: Nigeria in Crisis (1966-1970) by Ola Balogun| Book Review

Ola Balogun has declared a twist to the way the civil war is told in history. There are a lot of things that traditional media or history books may not tell you. You’re never really sure who to believe or who’s telling you the truth. I’ve read accounts of the Nigerian Civil War, but none have come close to the tunes Ola Balogun played in his book.

He didn’t just show us the skin, but everything including the blood and gore of war between brothers and sisters.
He stripped those years and inner workings of Nigerian politics down to the bone. He left Nigerians pants down by showing us one thing, Experience isn’t always the best teacher! Especially in Nigeria’s case. The problems we had then, we still have them now.
