Joining the NPFL would give them a gun and a certain measure of protection. In this way, the NPFL benefited from the mistakes of the government army. Second, concerning the interests of the factions, the following can be observed. First, political issues – in particular, who should rule the country – were important bones of contention among the protagonists in the war. The political domain was defined in negative terms of ‘no more Doe and his clique’. Taylor had the ambition of replacing Doe and becoming president of Liberia.

ULIMO managed to drive the NPFL out of most of the western part of Liberia. Under severe military pressure, Taylor agreed to a ceasefire in Cotonou, Benin, on 31 July 1993. ECOWAS had again applied pressure on Taylor’s regional backers to persuade them to end their support. 64 Soldiers from Tanzania and Uganda were sent to strengthen the ECOMOG troops. From March 1994 the ECOMOG forces started deploying throughout Liberia. After the Cotonou agreement a new interim government was established, the Liberian National Transitional Government (LNTG).

The chapter will conclude with some preliminary observations on the conflict. The protagonists The National Patriotic Front of Liberia and Charles Taylor The men forming the National Patriotic Front (NPFL) had gathered in neighbouring states, and Charles Taylor managed to bring these dissidents of diverse stock together in an invasion force.
