Egodi Uchendu focuses on the activities of women and their experiences during the Nigerian Civil War, thus illuminating an interesting, but hitherto neglected, aspect of the social history and demonstrating that women mattered too in the Nigeria-Biafra War. The book begins with a historical background of prewar Anoima society, with emphasis on its culture and political systems. In the subsequent seven chapters, which are based on extensive field-work, interviews, and written sources, Uchendu recounts the story of the war from women's point of view. (African Studies Review)
