“The end of Black Africa’s bloodiest modern war came with startling swiftness in late January. Outmatched in numbers and weapons, weakened by malnutrition, the half-starved Biafran troops caved in under a series of hammer blows by the Nigerian federal forces.”
This informational poster map was created and produced by the Civic Education Service for Scholastic Magazines, Inc. and published by the latter in Washington, D.C. in 1970. It was issued as part of the CES Headline-Focus Wall Map Series in March and shows the final phases of the Nigerian Civil War that concluded about two months prior.
Illustrated vignettes highlight locations of interest, important political actors, and industrial elements – of particular importance was the oil production in the Niger River Delta. Descriptive text provides some background on the ethnic conflict, while an inset in the lower left condemns the flight of the Biafran leader, Odumegwu Ojukwu.
