Product Overview

The Liberian Civil War engulfed the entire country. At one point, the NPFL rebels controlled almost the entire country; hostilities were rampant. The United States and other western countries quickly evacuated their citizens. The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) then committed its military wing, ECOMOG, to intercede. President Samuel Kanyon Doe, the military sergeant who came to power in a coup d'etat in 1980, was captured and killed in 1990 by a rebel faction, but the war did not end; it ballooned. People were killed; some starved, while others ran for their lives. U.S. President George W. Bush ordered some U. S. military presence to assist the peace initiative; and United Nations Secretary General Kofi Anan sent in 15,000 U. N. troops to pursue and enforce peace efforts. This book is a small part of the larger story of this war, where love and hatred coexisted with ethnic rivalry and selfishness. Yet, you will find acts of friendship and, selfless love and hope.
