For twenty years, the Lord's Resistance Army, led by Joseph Kony, ravaged northern Uganda with the mission of establishing a government based on his bizarre blend of spiritualism and Christianity. A former witchdoctor and spirit medium, Kony claimed he not only could predict the future but could control the minds of his fighters. And control them he did: the LRA consisted of children abducted from their homes. As initiation, boys were forced to commit atrocities--murdering relatives and friends--and girls were forced into sexual slavery and labor. Journalist Peter Eichstaedt goes into the war-torn villages and refugee camps, talking to former child soldiers, child "brides," and other victims. Told through the voices of those who have suffered, the book chronicles how one of Africa's most promising nations has been torn apart by a bloody and senseless war that has gone largely unnoticed by the rest of the world.
