Clouds of a Ghoulish War is about the advent of the civil wars in Sierra Leone and Liberia in the 1990s. It describes real events that took place in real locations in both countries. The Author has endeavored to paint a macabre picture of the wars as seen through the eyes of defenseless families and individuals caught up in the pandemonium. To a large extent this is their story; a story of excruciating physical pain and intense emotional and psychological trauma. The war stories explored in Clouds of a Ghoulish War are inextricably interwoven with the prevailing political and socio-ecomic conditions in both countries during the period under review-from the outbreak of the war in Liberia in 1989 to the invasion of Sierra Leone territory in 1991. Details of the bitter experiences of Sierra Leoneans and Liberian refugees on Sierra Leone soil are explored after the war crossed the border into Sierra Leone.
