Title:The demobilization of Nigerian troops 1946-1950: problems and consequences
Author:Olomola, Isola
Periodical:Odý: Journal of Yoruba and Related Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:No serious attempt has yet been made to consider the fate of the vast majority of the 121, 652 Nigerian veterans in the immediate post-Second World War years. This paper offers the much desired account. In it, it is tried as much as possible not to sit in judgment over the demobilization and resettlement issues. Rather is attempted to highlight for purposes of discussion the economic and social background of the veterans, their hopes for the post-war years and the problems and consequences of their absorption into civil life. Notes and ref., table, appendix.
