A Dirty War in West Africa: The RUF and the Destruction of Sierra Leone

Front Cover
Hurst, 2005 - Insurgency - 224 pages
4 Reviews
Provides important insider information on Sierra Leones recent war ... offers insights into the inner workings of a failing state and the insurgency ... fits well with Hursts reputation for publishing definitive accounts of out of the way places that are more important than armchair strategists would credit. ... It will appeal to those interested in more general aspects of contemporary warfare ... it also builds on Gberies established reputation as an insightful and courageous journalist. Though he soft-pedals his own positive role in Sierra Leones recent history, one should mention his contribution to the campaign against blood diamonds. Professor Will Reno, Northwestern University
