After a coup in 1967 and a long-period of one party rule, the Liberian Civil War spilled over into an already problematic country and a civil war broke out, lasting from 1991 to 2002. ChildSoldiers featured considerably. The war was ended by a UnitedNations intervention, involving the UK's armed forces in one of their lesser known, but most successful wars, including the rescue of 11 British soldiers by the SAS and Paras.

Sierra Leone is now recovering from the war, but it will be a long process. There is hope that a tourist trade can be set up from its beaches.
