The Defence Adviser to the United Kingdom in Nigeria, Brigadier Charles Calder, has donated some books to Army War College Nigeria as part of the United Kingdom military pledge to support the college course programme.
The UK Defence Adviser while making the presentation at the Army War College Nigeria Conference Room to the Commandant Army War College Nigeria Maj Gen EJ Enenche, stated that the books are meant to broaden the intellectual insights of the participants of the college on security imperatives within and outside the country as well as sharpen their intellects, analytic skills and cognitive capabilities.
Brigadier Calder further said that the collaboration and partnership efforts of the United Kingdom was focused on the War Colleges in Nigeria because the colleges are the back bone of dealing with security challenges in the country.

He said the donation of the books is an extension of a standing relationship which will continue to improve from strenght to strength. He noted that the donated books would add to the body of knowledge and improve scholarship in the college and by extension the Army.
The books cover science of war, strategies of war, history and imperatives of globalisation among others.
