9780099478935: Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda

When Lieutenant General Roméo Dallaire received the call to serve as force commander of the UN mission to Rwanda, he thought he was heading off to Africa to help two warring parties achieve a peace both sides wanted. Instead, he and members of his small international force were caught up in a vortex of civil war and genocide. Dallaire left Rwanda a broken man; disillusioned, suicidal, and determined to tell his story. An award-winning international sensation, Shake Hands with the Devil is a landmark contribution to the literature of war: a remarkable tale of a soldier's courage and an unforgettable portrait of modern warfare. It is also a stinging indictment of the petty bureaucrats who refused to give Dallaire the men and the operational freedom he needed to stop the killing. 'I know there is a God,' Dallaire writes, 'because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil. I have seen him, I have smelled him and I have touched him. I know the devil exists and therefore I know there is a God.'

Book Description:

" Shake Hands With The Devil is one of the saddest books I have ever read and one of the most heart-breaking eye-witness accounts.A kind of naive and painfully honest confession of the failure of an organisation, a meticulous description of one of the worst betrayals in the history of humanity." ( Guardian)

"indisputably the best account of the whole terrible Rwandan genocide" ( The Sunday Times)

"Although this is a deeply personal book, it is undoubtedly an important historical record of the UN's failure in Rwanda and an impassioned plea against the moral cowardice that allowed the genocide to happen." ( The Independent)

Book Description:

The number one international bestseller chosen as Nonfiction Book of the Year and winner of the Shaughnessy-Cohen prize; for political writing. A harrowing and ultimately redemptive war memoir by the General who commanded the UN forces in Rwanda, Dallaire's book is an invaluable contribution to the perennially popular genre of war literature.
