Original Summary:
"CBS News sent newsmen Mike Wallace and Harry Reasoner to Africa to report on the history and socio-political reasons behind the Nigeria/Biafra conflict. They recount Nigerian history of English colonial rule, the struggle for independence, and upon its gain, the rise of the Ibo nation to leadership. Then came a coup d'etat, and a wave of terror and massacre of the Ibos; they fled to their homeland of oil-rich Biafra and seceded from Nigeria. The war began. The elements of this tragic war (tribal jealousies, rich natural resources, major powers' interference) may provide a key and a code of conduct in the future development of the continent of Africa" - Summary from Worldcat.
