Overview

Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Not illustrated. Excerpt: Air Vice-Marshal George Yaw Boakye (December 25, 1937 June 26, 1979) was an airman and politician. He is a former Commander of the Ghana Air Force (November 1976 - June 1979) and member of the Supreme Military Council (SMC) in Ghana. He became a member of the SMC in November 1976 by virtue of his position as a Service Commander of the Ghana Air Force. He was executed by firing squad on June 26, 1979.
