The Great Deception

I have not finished reading all of it yet, but The Great Deception: The Role of the CIA in the Overthrow of Nkrumah is actually a very interesting collection of documents from the LBJ Presidential Library dealing with his administration's policies towards Ghana and other African countries. The duplicated documents do point to the US government including President Johnson, US Ambassador Mahoney, and CIA Director McCone being involved in helping bring about the 24 February 1966 coup that toppled Nkrumah from power and established the National Liberation Council junta.
