Idi Amin Dada’s regime has been described as one of the bloodiest in Africa’s history and most of the books written about him and his regime focus primarily on his brutality. Some are fictitious stories but most are narratives of people who lived in Uganda during Amin’s reign. This is a look at some of the reviews of the books that have been written about the man who one author calls the Hitler of Africa.
