In July 2013, we ran a competition to win copies of Soldiers of Fortune. Entrants had to submit their memories of the military era in less than 100 words. Below are the six winning entries. Many thanks to all who participated!
Sometime after June 12 I followed my aunt on a leisurely stroll and came across a protest march
We fell into tow and the next thing I remember we were both back in the house crying.
My aunt had been flogged by the soldiers and I had a lump on my forehead she was consoling me saying it was going to be fine.
May I know the reason why non-resident Nigerians are not allowed to participate in the essay? It would have been better to make it open to all Nigerians, irrespective of where they might reside. Preventing non-resident Nigerians from participating, will deny many would-have-been participants the opportunity to be part of the contest. Thanks.
congrats to all the winners. Irrespective of the fact that I did not win, I am gonna buy the book, read it cover to cover and critique it. Silloun is my man. Ride on, fellow son of Herodotus!
It is a great pleasure to see this, I must congratulate those who make the shortlist and those who have participated. Every body who participated is a winner and the loosers are those who are unable to enter their works. Great!
Interseting read. Congrats to the winners.
This is beautiful! There shold be a share button here. Bravo!
