    1. Interesting subject, monotonous writingIt seemed at times that the author couldn t decide if he was writing a biography or a history textbook Although the subject was catchy for this reader, the continuous introduction of names and facts became monotonous after awhile and detracted from the actual story.


    2. This is an important work of reporting, on an important moment in war crimes law the torture and war crimes charges resulting from the recent conflict in Liberia The book sketches the history of that unhappy place, and its unique ties to the US, from the 19th Century on Thus it brings the reader to the 1990s presidency of Charles Taylor, Sr who would become the first African head of state tried for crimes against humanity he came to power in a time of violent revolution and would wage ongoing wa [...]



    3. Really interesting reporting about Liberia ex prez Charles Taylor s American citizen son Chucky, who split time between suburban Florida and war torn Monrovia getting into some really awful stuff As the sole individual who s been prosecuted and convicted under 18 USC 2340 for torture and this during the peak years of fantastic OLC opinions on enhanced interrogation not amounting to the kind of torture prohibited under that statute and the international Convention Against Torture it implements , [...]


    4. I knew nothing really about Charles Taylor and the fight in Liberia Sierra Leone before reading this book, but finished it shaking my head at the brazen disregard for human life and the utter depravity, poverty, fear and terror the people of those countries had to endure in the five short years that are primarily covered here The guys personalities are well drawn though I thought the women were weakly represented and I kept asking myself, why in the world did these women keep connecting themselv [...]


    5. This book is really somewhere around 3.5 stars for me.What s most gripping about this book is how horrifying it is The idea that someone with such a typical life can turn into something so monstrous I was also incredibly surprised that considering the breadth of these charges that I d never heard about about Chucky or any of his exploits before I found the rap lyrics for every chapter a bit confusing it s not clear why they re there until nearly two thirds of the way into the book Also consideri [...]


    6. Chucky Taylor s 2008 trial in Miami federal court was a sort of homecoming for a young man whose adolescence in Florida had been like so many others bored with the suburbs and longing for absent fathers.The surreal journey Taylor took from Florida to Liberia and then back to stand trial for torture is the subject of American Warlord Through public records requests, trial transcripts, interviews in the U.S and Liberia and letters from Taylor himself, journalist Johnny Dwyer tried to piece togethe [...]


    7. Grim story of an American teenager who joins his father a brutal dictator in Liberia The dictator s son became the head of a violent militia group ostensibly designed for his father s security After the dictator was ousted, his son eventually returned to the United States, only to become the first US citizen prosecuted under a post 9 11 antiterror statute Sobering, with glimpses of shocking violence in a lawless country.


    8. I received this book as part of a giveaway.I know by entering a giveaway, you are taking your chances Some books you really enjoy, others not so much American Warlord falls into the second category for me The book was well written, but I could not connect with the subject matter.I think my feelings on this book are best summed up by borrowing some of the author s own words This was just a bunch of people who had weapons in a country that nobody cared about.


    9. I often had a hard time reading this book, although I should mention that I read this book at night before I went to sleep I think that the history in this book is fascinating and sickening , and there were some quite graphic parts where some of the horrors occurring in Libya were described I am always saddened to learn that, while I ve been living my relatively easy life, I have failed to notice the intense struggle of others This book will make you think about that.


    10. A chilling account of the life of Chucky Taylor, son of Charles Taylor, elected President and brutal dictator of Liberia, who became the first American convicted of torture in a foreign country If you don t like graphic depictions of brutal and horrific torture and murders, this book is not for you.


    11. I won this book from giveaways.Fantastic journalistic look into the history of a place I ve never heard of on a civil war I had no knowledge of I m very glad I read this book.


    12. Disappointing Some of the historical facts are askew Much like the wars in Liberia this book was difficult to digest No head, no tail.


    13. This book is clearly written and documents how the son of Charles Taylor becomes a warlord in his own right I found the coverage a bit superficial, however.
