The Peacekeepers War
Liberia | 1992
In Liberia, AFL government forces fought a vicious civil war against rebel forces led by Charles Taylor. His Patriotic Front, the NPFL, broke a truce of two years by staging an attack on Monrovia, Liberia's main port. What started as a civil war soon became something else, as the seven-nation West African peacekeeping force, Ecomog, joined the fray.
