"Shows the scale and nature of the atrocities committed in Uganda since Amin overthrew Obote's Government in the coup of January 1971. He wants to eradicate any remaining impression of Amin as a noble savage or as an amiable comedian . This account is essential reading for anyone interested in Amin, or in Africa. It includes important new material both about Amin's coup and its causes, and about the futile and mismanaged attempt of Obote to recapture power by a military invasion from Tanzania."
