Soldiers of Fortune: A History of Nigeria (1983-1993) by Max Siollun
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.3 MB
Overview: The years between 1983 and 1993 were momentous for Nigeria. Military rule was a time of increased violence, rampant corruption, coups, coup plotting and coup baiting. It moulded the conditions and character of Nigeria today, forcing seismic changes on the political, economic and religious landscape that nearly tore the country apart on several occasions.
Soldiers of Fortune is a fast-paced and thrilling narrative of the major events of the Buhari and Babangida era. The book draws on previously uncovered observations from interviews conducted with insiders (including a former member of the Brigade of Guards and Nigerian Airways personnel who witnessed the attempted kidnap of Umaru Dikko), to compile step-by-step dramatic reconstructions of disputed events and intrigues. Siollun’s fresh perspective challenges preconceived views to reveal the true story behind controversies of the period: the annulment of the June 12 election, the dubious execution of Mamman Vatsa, the foiled kidnapping of Umaru Dikko, the Orkar coup and the inconclusive case of the assassination of Dele Giwa.

Shipwreck: The Strange Fate of the Morro Castle by Gordon Thomas, Max Morgan Witts
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.1 Mb
Overview: A spellbinding moment-by-moment account of one of the most spectacular disasters off the coast of New York which killed more than 130 people. Answers the question which until now has remained unanswered: was it a terrible accident – or arson?
In the early morning hours of September 8, 1934, the luxury cruise liner Morro Castle, carrying 316 passengers and 230 officers and crew, caught fire a few hours out of the New York harbor on a return voyage from Havana. The fire spread with terrifying swiftness, transforming the ship into a blazing inferno.
One hundred thirty four people died that night.
Was it an accident?
Until now, that question has remained unanswered. In Shipwreck, authors Thomas and Witts prove that the disaster was no accident – that it was planned, meticulously and deliberately, by an office of the Morro Castle. His name: George White Rogers, chief radio officer aboard the ship. They show that quite possibly, Rogers was also responsible for the untimely death of the ship’s captain, who died mysteriously, apparently poisoned, several hours before the fire broke out.
Other embarrassing questions are answered – questions raised during the investigation following the disaster and never satisfactorily answered: Why was a proper alarm never given? Why did the fire-fighting equipment, such as it was, fail to function? Why were only two life boats launched, and why were they filled with crew and officers instead of passengers?
Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan Witts have written a spellbinding moment by moment account of the Morro Castle’s last voyage, one of the most spectacular disasters to stir the Atlantic Ocean. In interviews with eye-witnesses – survivors, rescuers, investigators – they have uncovered the startling answers to a multitude of questions that have surrounded the case for almost forty years.
The result of their research is a dramatic tale of personal heroism, obvious incompetence, tragedy, and quite possibly murder.
