Literature on child soldiers

The excellent Pambazuka News had a well-done review of two books by West African authors, both of which deal with the theme of child soldiers. One was Ishmael Beah’s A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, which is now popular in American bookstores. The other was the novel Allah Is Not Obliged by the late Ahmadou Kourouma (which was published in French several years ago and apparently is now out in an English translation).
