Britain's Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Department of History, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)

On October 1, 1960, Nigeria gained her independence from the British colonial rule. On July 6, 1967, the country was engulfed in a civil war fought between the Federal Military Government of Nigeria, led by Major-General Yakubu Gowon, and the defunct Republic of Biafra, led by Lieutenant-Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu. As the former colonial power, and Nigeria’s closet partner in the Commonwealth and, indeed, in the Western world, the outbreak of the war in 1967 presented Britain with a painful dilemma.

Credentials: 

Author of "American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919"

The Second World War was to Alaska what the First World War had been to the nation. The essential reality of Alaska’s experience during World War II was the end of its isolation from the continental United States. As a consequence of the war, Alaska’s territorial era entered its twilight years, eclipsed by the dawn of statehood nineteen years later and driven largely by military imperatives. A further legacy was Alaska’s inevitably

A History of Alaska, Volume II: Alaska On the Road to War

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M. Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of *American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

The most significant military development to touch Alaska during the interwar years was the advent of air power, an innovation that completely altered Alaska's strategic position. Suddenly the world became smaller as areas once thought safely distant from potential enemies became vulnerable. Nowhere was this more evident than in the Pacific, whose countless islands became potential advanced air bases.
