Chinua Achebe’s “There Was A Country”-Book Review

“Why has the war not been discussed or taught to the young over forty years after its end? Are we perpetually doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past because we are too stubborn to learn from them? It is for the sake of the future Nigeria, for our children, that I feel it’s important to tell Nigeria’s story, Biafra’s story, our story, my story.”
– By the Late Chinua Achebe
