This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
‘How dare they kill his men!’ he thought to himself. Captain Kelso, Alpha Company’s CO, went from conservative and reserved about committing his Company to entering the box canyon.

Towards the end of the book, Okonkwo was stunned that everything he knew and loved throughout his life was disappearing and his own people took no retaliatory actions at all. In fact, he and his friends attempted to overthrow the District Commissioner, but failed and were arrested but later released. At that point, war was on the horizon and lots was at risk. They already had the Massacre at Abame still floating in their minds, the law of the English already took its toll on the people and there was the risk of losing everything if they went to war. In the last minute, Okonkwo beheaded a British messenger who ordered the meeting held in Umuofia to be stopped.
