"This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped up on drugs, and wielding AK-47s. In the more than fifty violent conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah used to be one of them. How does one become a killer? How does one stop? Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But it is rare to find a first-person account from someone who endured this hell and survived. In A Long Way Gone, Beah, now twenty-six years old, tells a riveting story in his own words: how, at the age of twelve, he fled attacking rebels and wandered a land rendered unrecognizable by violence. By thirteen, he'd been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts. This is a rare and mesmerizing account, told with real literary force and heartbreaking honesty"--[Site web de l'éditeur]
War and children a reference handbook by Kendra E Dupuy( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War and Children: A Reference Handbook looks at one of the most wrenching aspects of armed conflict, ranging across the globe to examine the different ways armed conflict and postwar reconstructions affect children and young people, and how they have responded to both war and efforts to alleviate warÕs destruction.''While war has always affected children, the nature of that impact has changed in the last half-century. Civil conflicts break out in mostly poor, developing countries with large populations of young people, and combatants are less hesitant to turn civilian areas into battlegrounds. War and Children explores these phenomena by focusing primarily on recent conflicts worldwide, with case studies dramatizing important issues and controversiesÑincluding the considerable number of children soldiers throughout the world.'''

"Hideously effective in conveying the essential horror of his experiences," (Kirkus Reviews), former child soldier Ishmael Beah escaped his native Sierra Leone at 17. He detailed his brutal early years and his struggle to return to civilized society in his international bestseller, A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, required reading "to learn about the world and what it means to be human" (Washington Post). Beah's other writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, LIT, and numerous academic journals. He has spoken before the United Nations and the Council on Foreign Relations on the effects of war on children, and is also a UNICEF ambassador and advocate. Radiance of Tomorrow, his first novel, explores the depredations, upheavals, and tenacious hope experienced by two friends in the aftermath of Sierra Leone's civil war

This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than fifty conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But until now, there has not been a first-person account from someone who came through this hell and survived.

By thirteen, he'd been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts.--From publisher description
