From the Foreword
"Adeyinka Makinde, in writing this book, has excavated the knowledge and the story of a hero, Dick Tiger, made his life a historical indelibility, and set a course for others to travel. The author�s patient tenacity in researching facts is patently evident in every page of the book." Dr. Paddy Davies, formerly of the Directorate of Biafran Propaganda.
