Description-
  • The Devil Came on Horseback leads you through the tragic impact of an Arab government bent on destroying its black African citizens, the frustrating complexity of international inactions in response to blatant genocide, and the awkward, yet heroic transformation of a former Marine turned humanitarian. This compelling autobiographical account bears witness to unmentionable atrocities while offering listeners evidence that the actions of just one committed person have the power to transform the world.

    When he realized his daily reports were falling on deaf ears, Brian Steidle resigned from his position, returned home, and began speaking out publicly about what he saw, putting his life and career at risk. Despite threats from Sudanese officials, efforts from our government to silence him, and backlash from the humanitarian aid groups he wished to support, Brian has dedicated himself to carrying his story to the people and leaders of the Western world. He has been heralded by U.S. senators as a "true American hero" and is now recognized as a catalyst for international attention on Darfur.

    This is an intense, vivid report and call to action from the heart of violent Darfur by a former American Marine who became a military observer for the African Union—a powerful memoir of a soldier's awakening to conscience—and the first extensive on-the-ground account of the genocide in Sudan.

About the Author-
  • Brian Steidle, a former Marine Corps captain, worked for the African Union in Darfur. He now gives lectures about Darfur across the country. He has been heralded by U.S. senators as a "true American hero" and is now recognized as a catalyst for international attention on Darfur. He lives in Los Angeles.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Where is the horror? Where is the outrage, asks Brian Steidle, bewildered by the lack of international response to what is clearly the genocide of Darfur's black population. As an ex-marine and member of the African Union's monitoring team, he witnesses firsthand the government of Sudan's attempt to systematically eliminate all but the Arab population. Echoing Steidle's personal narrative, Jeff Cummings's voice moves from na•ve hope that something can be accomplished to anger at the senseless slaughter and surprise at its political complexity. Deeply frustrated at the inaction and even indifference of the rest of the world, his contract up, Steidle grabs his laptop, his notebooks, his camera, and heads for home, hoping to alert the public and awaken its moribund conscience. P.E.F. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
  • Publishers Weekly "Steidle's personal and fluent account effectively channels an idealistic, adventuresome young man's growing frustration and horror in the face of ongoing crimes against humanity and international complacency."
