SynopsisEditor's Notes:The drama Beasts of No Nation was acclaimed last year for its depiction of child soldiers engaged in Africa's most brutal wars -- and as this National Headliner Award-winning edition of Dan Rather Reports shows, the fact is much worse than any of the cruelties shown in fiction. Chronicling the pain and terror of children forced to kill at gunpoint by rebel forces in Uganda's decades-long wars and clashes, featuring interviews with children forced into murder, cannibalism and other atrocities in the name of power and profit, A Silent War, a Violent Peace is searing journalism revealing the worst -- and the best -- in human nature as one-time child soldiers strive to come to terms with their pasts and become children and civilians again. Synopsis: A National Headliner Award Winner. Examine how the decades-long civil war in Uganda has brutalized children, who are often kidnapped and forced to fight as mercenaries.
