About this title


In Colonial Africa, a British Commodore in command of the newly formed Royal Nigerian Navy in the late 50 s 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 author s 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.

About the Author:

Biography The author, whose life is detailed in this book, immigrated to the United States in 1972 where he settled and raised a family shortly after his career in the Nigerian Navy ended as a result of the Biafra war. He is retired from a career in computer systems where he ran his own business developing and selling point-of-sale solutions for vertical markets such as tobacco shops. He lives in California with his wife who is a retired nurse. They have three daughters all of whom live in California.
