Charles Taylor was born of an Americo-Liberian father and a native mother. Educated in the United States he served in Sergeant Doe's government went the disgruntled soldier overthrew the admittedly flawed but democratically-elected government. Then he went to Libya where he and some followers received terrorist training. A combination of terror tactics against the hated Doe regime turned him into a warlord in control of much of Liberia in the 1990s. Later his unpaid "army" of looters would be involved in wars amongst all of Liberia's neighbors. It is hard to believe that one man could cause so much suffering.
Well-written but repititious in places. Illustrated with black-and-white photos.
