Summary: This book shows how Africa's former colonial powers--including Great Britain, France, Portugal, and Spain--trained members and leaders of colonial Armed Forces to be politically nonpartisan. Yet, the modern-day Armed Forces have become so politicized that many countries are today ruled or have already been ruled by military dictators through coups d'etat, occasionally for good reasons as the book points out. This book traces the historical and political evolution of
these events and what bodes for Africa, where the unending military incursions into partisan politics are concerned.
