Description:
Doyle documents the atrocities committed in the Congo Free State, the personal possession of Leopold II of Belgium.

The abuses of the Congo Free State, and worldwide denunciations when they came to light, were instrumental in the Belgian government assuming responsibility of the territory, and renaming it the Belgian Congo.
