Girls At War and Other Stories by Chinua Achebe l Summary & Study Guide

The more desperate people become, the more desperate their actions. Although it appealed to me as an intellectual, and was quite rapt, the story did not resonate with me on an emotional level possibly because of the one dimensional characterization , which is why I am giving it four stars. I like pieces that simultaneously stimulate our intellectual and emotional senses. Regardless, this work is still powerful with meaning and will provide a satisfying percipience.

Girls at War begins with the narrator explaining the first time that Reginald Nwankwo, a high-ranking Nigerian official, and Gladys, an attractive young woman, met. She is attempting to volunteer to fight in the war, and he is rejecting her. The second time they meet is when Reginald is passing through a roadblock during the war. Normally, he can pass through these impediments without issue, but this time the agent, Gladys, insists on searching his vehicle. He submits begrudgingly, eventually recognizing the young woman. Her diligence reinvigorates his desire for victory in the war. Eighteen months later, Reginald is intercepting some food aid at an air strip to deliver to his family.
