TRUE WAR STORIES. Today there are 20 million children around the world who have been uprooted, orphaned, or injured by war, famine, and poverty. In modern warfare, children are protagonists, for good or ill. As a young man in his early 20s, Charles London was given the rare opportunity--as a Research Associate for Refugees International--to live with and work with these children, and in ONE DAY THE SOLDIERS CAME, he enters their world, celebrating their unique skills for survival and reflection. Through the stories and drawings of children from Congo, Burma, Kosovo, Sudan, and Rwanda--the sites of some of the most violent upheavals of the past decade--we see the invisible narrative of the young as they experience, understand, and are shaped by the conflicts around them. These stories are sometimes painful, sometimes triumphant, sometimes funny, and sometimes terrifying.
