The eleven-year civil war in Sierra Leone from 1991 to 2002 was incomprehensibly brutal-it is estimated that half of all female refugees were raped and many thousands were killed.

Female Soldiers in Sierra Leone draws on interviews with 75 former female soldiers and over 20 local experts, providing a rare perspective on both the civil war and post-conflict de.
