Description - The Devil Came on Horseback by Brian Steidle
Former United States Marine Brian Steidle served for six months in Darfur as an unarmed military observer for the African Union. There he witnessed first-hand the ongoing genocide, and documented every day of his experience. Fired upon, taken hostage, a witness to villages destroyed and people killed, frustrated by his missions limitations and the international communitys reluctance to intervene, Steidle resigned and has since become an advocate for the world to step in and stop this genocide. The Devil Came on Horseback is a gripping memoir that bears witness to unmentionable atrocities and urges all of us to take action.
