Praise for this book
"Samuel Fury Childs Daly's keen eye and steady hand pushes aside the conventional wisdom about military coups in Africa to show how military rule relied on courts to enforce the discipline that soldiers believed Nigeria needed. The rule of law and the rule of guns were not always an easy fit, but the space between them allowed for debate and dissent, most powerfully in the (literal) show trial of Fela Kuti."--Luise White, author of "Fighting and Writing: The Rhodesian Army at War and Postwar"
