    "If one one wanted to learn about Sierra Leone History, "A Dirty War in West Africa" paints a narrow picture. True, it does view it's reader gritty information about a horrible civil, however this is from a outside journalists perspective and does not paint a picture that will go beyond its subject matter. Therefore, the depiction is rather fragmented, and anthropologically ethnocentric."

    "I have a deep fascination about Sierra Leone and the deep history seeded from the brutal ten year war it endured. I'm specifically curious about the accounts and stories retold from the narratives of those that went through it. I found the Kindle version for Sierra Leone: Inside the War, History and Narratives from a friend who is currently studying about this. I found it deeply moving and it very eye opening to learn about all the different events that happened as more importantly reading about the narratives from those local as well as the Peace Corp workers there. This is a good learning tool for those as curious as I was about seeking more knowledge about Sierra Leone's brutal history."
