This book is in your face raw. I read this for a book review in university and it ended with me writing my most passionate and well thought essay of that span. What happened in Rwanda was devastating and Dallaire pulls no punches in describing it to you. It seems like a very emotional and well thought out account of what happened during his time and his reasonings for his actions while in command. It would be impossible to try and understand the mental anguish he would have gone through day in and day out.

This is a must read for everyone.

Courage to try to battle through PTSD after returning as Commander in the Rwandan War. Current focus: Child Soldiers the entire world must find ways to eliminate this vile practice.
Read to the end of the book. Lessons in truth and love. Canada's foremost citizen. Too difficult to "review" this book that has flown me to reality without fear.

A first hand account of one man's descent into darkness. While Mr Dallaire isn't a writer he still manages to have the reader right beside him. If you want to know about Rwanda debacle this is the book.
