Teenager in the Chad Civil War: A Memoir of Survival, 1982-1986 (2006) (Memoir)
by Esaie Toingar
McFarland & Company

USD$30

The country of Chad is one of many African nations that have been fighting a series of particularly brutal wars, internal and external, since independence. Covering 1982 to 1986, this memoir tells the story of Ésaïe Toïngar, a native of southern Chad and miraculous survivor of Chad’s darkest days, many of which came during different Septembers. This work contains Toïngar’s first-hand description of growing up, coming of age and waging the ultimate struggle for survival in the war-torn country. It gives a graphic account of what transpired in Chad during the rule of Habre and the ways in which the author managed to survive, fleeing his home village and seeking safety among the CODOs, a rebel movement of the south.
