Our Agony, Their Victory: The Impact of the Nigerian Civil War on the Women and Children of Biafra

Kenneth Chukwuemeka Nwoko

Abstract


The concept of armed conflict the world over is always perceived from the perspective of the belligerents. The impacts of these conflicts are most often measured in terms of the strategic and economic losses. But the underprivileged, which fight the most; the women, children and the aged, who suffer and sacrifice the most, are often not recognized nor considered. This study examines the untold effect of the highest form of deprivation, suffering, agony and despair of the weak in Biafra, the vulnerable, the women and children of Biafra.
