“…he gets closer to understanding the inside story of Nigeria’s military rule and […]cast of personalities than other literature on the subject.” Kaye Whiteman, former editor, West Africa magazine

“Max Siollun stands unchallenged, in contemporary times, as the Chronicler-in-Chief of the Nigerian military. Soldiers of Fortune is a compelling, pause-often-and-wonder account of yet another unfortunate epoch; narrated with clarity and an unmistakable commitment to truthfulness – qualities which should never be taken for granted in Nigeria.” Tolu Ogunlesi, Writer
