Shake Hands With the Devil the Failure of Humanity in Rwanda

Kit - 2003
Rate this:
Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire recounts his mission to Rwanda as the commander of a group of United Nations peacekeepers. Woven together are the stories of a country brutalized by civil war and international neglect and that of a man facing down the demons of having witnessed first-hand incomprehensible cruelty. Dallaire writes that he was nearly broken and suicidal following his 13 months in Rwanda during which time over 800,000 Rwandans were slaughtered. This is a scathing portrayal of the international community's naivete and unwillingness to intervene in a meaningful way even though it was aware of the genocide taking place.
