A Profile of Courage is the memoir of Paul Chabri Tarfa, retired Major General of the Nigerian Army. In lucid prose, he recounts his upbringing in Garkida, his choice of a career in the Army, his role in frustrating the January 15th, 1966 coup at the Federal Guards, Lagos, and his active participation in the military through the Civil War, coups and counter-coups until his retirement in 1988. Revised in view of restating his truth to today’s Nigeria, A Profile in Courage channels the lives of Birma Bata, Usman Vidau, Paul Tarfa himself, Yakubu Gowon, T. Y. Danjuma, Ahmadu Kurfi, and many others faced with decisions requiring courage in times of extreme emergency.
