Having grown up during the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, Dr. Anselm Chibuike Anyoha gives a realistic view of what children had to endure during these tough times. Seen through the eyes of a child, it shows how children perceive issues differently than adults. Not only does this historical fiction story show the point of view of children, but it also shows the point of view from the enemy, the Conscriptors. This dramatic retelling of a real historical event shows the different ways people can be affected by wars.
