A frightening autobiographical account of being a child soldier in the Sierra Leone civil war from about 1992 to 1996. The horrors witnessed, terrors experienced, and the ruthless cruelty that the author himself performed are hard to believe and difficult to listen to. One of the most eye-opening aspects of it was how easily he could disable and bury alive people (when he is 15-16 years old), and when he gets to a rehabilitation center, is told that its not his fault! Doesn't moral development get to a point where one is responsible for one's conduct by the age of 8 or 9? This audiobook was read by the author rather badly.
