Ishmael Beah's A Long Way Gone

Adults create war. The young are sacrificed in it. Forced into war into an early stage of life is a traumatic experience for anyone. Ismael Beah in his memoir A Long Way Gone graphically records his wartime experience in Sierra Leone and the difficulty in social rehabilitation later. The loss of innocence and its regain provides a good read although the writing was not par excellence.
