About the Author

Chinua Achebe was born in Nigeria in 1930. His first novel, Things Falls Apart, became a classic of international literature and required reading for students worldwide. He also authored four subsequent novels, two short-story collections, and numerous other books. He was the David and Marianna Fisher University Professor and Professor of Africana Studies at Brown University and, for over 15 years, was the Charles P. Stevenson Jr. Professor of Languages and Literature at Bard College. In 2007, Achebe was awarded the Man Booker International Prize for lifetime achievement. He died in 2013.

the title girls at war is ironical. why do i say this? this is because when we look at the title girls at war what comes into mind is some girls in a war scene fighting .but the real story is about a war in nigeria and how the rich in the society take advantage of the weaker ones in the society to get what they want and how the weaker people in the society, in their quest for survival, strive against all odds to survive.
