Presents a portrait of Emma McCune, a young relief worker in the Sudan, who married a local warlord, and describes her involvement in his violent quest to seize control of southern Sudan's rebel movement.

Blackwell North Amer
Emma McCune's passion for Africa, her unstinting commitment to the children of Sudan, and her youthful beauty and glamour set her apart from other relief workers from the moment she arrived in southern Sudan. But no one was prepared for her decision to marry a local warlord - a man who seemed to embody everything she was working against - and to throw herself into his violent quest to take over southern Sudan's rebel movement.
With precision and insight, Deborah Scroggins - who met McCune in Sudan - charts the process by which McCune's romantic delusions led to her descent into the hell of Africa's longest-running civil war. Emmas' War is at once a disturbing love story and an up-close look at Sudan: a world where international aid fuels armies as well as the starving population, and where the northern-based Islamic government - backed by Osama bin Laden - is locked in a war with the Christian and pagan south over religion, oil, and slaves.
