War Child by Emmanuel Jal--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Emmanuel Jal's memoir War Child: A Child Soldier's Story. In the mid-1980s, Emmanuel Jal was a seven-year-old Sudanese boy living in a small village. But then his mother was killed and his father Simon rose to become a powerful commander in the Christian Sudanese Liberation Army, fighting for the freedom of Sudan. Soon, Jal was conscripted into that army, one of 10,000 child soldiers, and fought through two separate civil wars over nearly a decade.
