THE ARMED FORCES IN THE PAST


The armed forces have traditionally played a significant role in Ghanaian society. The most important factors associated with the growth of the military's role in national life include the emergence of Asante militarism, the British conquest of Ghana, and the political activities of the armed forces following independence.
