This is the story of Ishmael Beah’s childhood – how, aged just 12, he fled from rebels attacking his village to wander a violent land, before being conscripted into the army – where he learnt that he too was capable of terrible acts. Once he emerged he decided to tell his story, a story of the loss of innocence and the power of redemption.
This is the first first-hand account of how wars are now fought: by children, on drugs, with AK-47s. In more than fifty conflicts going on worldwide, there are an estimated 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah was one of them.

История гражданской войны в Сьера Лионе изнутри – глазами ее непосредственного участника, потерявшего всю семью, ставшего в 13 лет солдатом, чудом выжившего и спасшегося из страны.
К сожалению, книга не переведена на русский, но язык несложный, с контекстным словарем читается без проблем.
