    The defining experience of Chinua Achebe's life was the Nigerian civil war, also known as the Biafran War, of 1967-1970. The conflict was infamous for its savage impact on the Biafran people, Chinua Achebe's people, many of whom were starved to death after the Nigerian government blockaded their borders. Immediately after, Achebe took refuge in an academic post in the United States, and for more than 40 years he has maintained a considered silence on the events of those terrible years. Now, decades in the making, comes a towering reckoning with one of modern Africa's most fateful events.

    Okonkwo er kendt viden om som en stor bryder og kriger, og han er en af landsbyen Umuofias mest lovende mænd.

Han har fra et fattigt udgangspunkt langsomt arbejdet sig hen imod dette mål, da sort uheld tvinger ham og hans familie ud i syv års landflygtighed.
