"Marooned in Darfur" features WW II Army Air Force Sergeant Neil Clemans' first-hand account as a weather observer in Darfur during the war.
Before heading overseas in 1943 on a Liberty Ship bound for Cairo, Clemans bought a pocket-size Leica camera, and carried it with him to the Middle East and Central Africa. Soldiers weren't allowed to bring cameras into war zones, therefore, the photographs included throughout the book may be the only documentation of the area, his fellow soldiers, and the local people.
Clemans dedicates this book to the United States Army Air Force weathermen of the 19th Weather Squadron and to the people of Darfur, many who have been attacked, murdered, and/or displaced during the current conflict.
10% of the proceeds from the sale of Marooned in Darfur will be donated to the Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur.
