Things Fall apart Question

What proportion of the book is given over to the coming of white men to umuofia?, what does that suggest about Achebe's purpose?

I think about a quarter to a third of the novel is given towards the coming of the white man. I think Achebe's main purpose was to give the reader a glimpse into the Igbo culture before the white man systematically destroys it.
