This article discusses war and international relations. In the cold war now being waged between democracy and Communism, Africa is the great uncommitted continent. The allegiance of the 230,000,000 people who dwell on this vast land mass is one of the greatest prizes for which the giant contestants are striving. At the beginning of the cold war the Communists had an initial advantage in Africa. Throughout most of Africa the transition could take place smoothly. Europeans living in most parts of central Africa were not permanent settlers.
