Title: The Port Harcourt Volunteer: Experiences of a Young Combatant in the  Nigeria-Biafra War

Author: Sam Ohuabunwa

Genre: Non-fiction (Memoir)

Format: Paperback

Number of Pages: 118

Publication Year: July, 2015

Publisher: Kraft Books Limited

ISBN: 978-978-918-316-6

Available at: Amazon Kindle Store

Short Description: This book is essentially the story of the Nigerian political crisis which started with the January 15, 1966 military coup and resulted in the Nigeria-Biafra War (1967-1970). It is told from the perspective of a young combatant from the Biafran side and chronicles Sam Ohuabunwa’s experience from the day schools were shut because of the war, the duration of the war, and the day they were opened as the war ended. It portrays the various risks he undertook in his zeal to defend the Biafran cause as a soldier and the amazing miraculous deliverances he enjoyed. To many Nigerians who were distant from the war, to those too young to  remember or those not born during this crisis, this book gives a good account of what caused the war, how it was fought and how it was brought to an end. A very important and critical point made in his book is that though the war was like a kind of war of unity for Nigeria, the desired unity has not really been achieved. Nigerians are encouraged to take certain critical steps to seal and solidify  Nigeria’s unity, so that Nigeria will not fight another civil war, ever.

Poems of Redemption by Olawale Famodun

poems-of-redemptionTitle: Poems of Redemption

Author: Olawale Famodun

Genre: Poetry

Format: Paperback

Book Dimension: 6 x 9

Number of Pages: 106

Publication Year: January 18, 2015

Publisher: Creative Talents Unleashed

ISBN: 978-0990500971

Available at: Amazon Store

Short Description: A very deep collection with the author touching on a number of threads about life. Love, especially, is proclaimed and celebrated in ‘The Rains have fallen’, ‘Yours unconditionally’, ‘Star’, ‘Love has made it’ and many more.

Famodun’s style sometimes drifts to the pre-romantic era of English literature. However, in ‘Aditu’, the author uses poetic insight to explain the mysterious powers of nature that man has succeed in harnessing, but has yet to fully explain. The spirit of assurance of redemption is woven throughout the collection especially in poems like ‘Positive’ and ‘Poem of Redemption’. It is a good read and very philosophical in ‘Gangplank’, ‘The Way’, ‘I, someone else and Myself with Me’, ‘Infinity’ and ‘Baby’. You don’t need to appreciate reading poetry before you could enjoy ‘Poems of Redemption.’ – MrAkanz (Amazon Reviewer)
