'The Reversed Victory is therefore a veritable and breath- taking tour-de-force from one of Nigeria’s military intellectuals. By firing the first salvo in what promises to be a lively intellectual debate about why we were in Sierra Leone (that is, the policy rationale of intervention) and what eventually went wrong (that is, the operational question of how a defeated band of rebels eventually reorganised and almost drove a professional outfit into the sea) the author provides the Nigerian public a rare insight into the country’s foreign policy making process.'
