In this chapter Beah describes the gradual indoctrination of young boys into the ways of warfare. The haven they have been led to becomes the training ground for their martial skills. Beah finds that the army might be better than wandering aimlessly in the countryside and always in danger of being hurt or killed. In the army Beah at least can eat. In the army, Beah has a sense of security and protection. Beah will have to fight and kill for the army but this option seems the better of two very bad situations.
