Summary
Young Agu is asleep in a one-room shack when he hears them breaking through the door. Dragged out in the muddy, rain-soaked road, he lies prone before a shabby band of guerilla soldiers. Their leader, the imposing Commandant, will decide Agu's fate. In lieu of a swift execution, he is coerced to join their rebel army wher he finds a paternal figure in the Commandant. As he participates in a series of savage compaigns, he must face the sickening reality of his own dehumanization
