The Warlord


If our attack is to be successful, we need to know the movements of the UN troops. I need patrol times, troop numbers and weapons checks.  The little girls in this village make the perfect spies. They look innocent and people do not suspect them.

Some of my soldiers have taken some of the girls as wives. Times can be hard in conflict and my soldiers deserve some comforts. I also have employed some of the boys from the nearby village to help cook and carry supplies.

Most of the children are hungry and desperate. They will do anything I tell them to. If they don’t listen they will feel the full extent of my power and the sting of my bullets. I have no time for insubordination!
