Constantly. A main theme is the memoir is about how all the child soldiers were constantly doing drugs, and addicted to them.

It is mentioned absolutely, but it doesn't happen to any of the characters themselves. There are 2 mentions/descriptions of sexual assault.

Spoilers:
The first time it is a boy who the author traveled with, who mentioned that when the rebels attacked his village, he hid in the attic and heard as the rebels r*ped his sisters. The second mention of sexual assault is when the author is told by his commander about "boys who are forced to have sex with their mothers".

There is no mention of sexual assault beyond that.

People running from the rebels are described as having jumped in the river and swimming until they couldn’t anymore. Later, a boat is shot at and capsizes.
