About this title:

Synopsis: In this moving and unforgettable narrative journalist Daniel Bergner travels into the heart of Sierra Leone, a country torn apart by war. This is the story of the people he encounters in a realm of fire and jungle as they rebuild their lives: Lamin, who lost his hands to save his daughter; Komba, child soldier and sometime cannibal; Neall Ellis, the mercenary pilot with a conscience; Valentine Strasser the embittered ex-dictator; and the Western outsiders trying to save a land of startling beauty and brutality. Shocking, often heartbreaking yet ultimately hopeful, Soldiers of Light is a story of survival and a haunting work of literary reportage.

Review: A quietly intense and acutely distressing account ... Bergner [is] a gifted reportet. -- David Caute, Spectator

A rare book indeed ... a journey in which both author and reader are irrevocably changed. -- Sunday Times

Bergner introduces missionaries, mercenaries, mechanics, medics and regular military, whose innocent optimism ... is heartbreakingly moving. -- The Times

Blessed with the rare gifts of tremendously tidy prose alongside an exquisite turn of phrase ... a genuinely emotional journey. -- Observer

Daniel Bergner is a brave man and he has written an extraordinarily good book. -- Rian Malan

In the finest Orwellian tradition, Soldiers of Light will discomfit readers across the political spectrum. -- Boyd Tonkin, Independent

Riveting, elegiac... genius. -- The Guardian

[An] enthralling, often moving account. -- Sunday Times
