Serving in Rwanda in 1993 as a UN Force Commander, Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire and his small UN peacekeeping force found themselves abandoned by the world's major powers in a vortex of civil war and genocide. With meager resources to stem the killing, General Dallaire was witness to the murder of 800,000 Rwandans in a hundred days, and returned home broken, disillusioned and suicidal. Shake Hands with the Devil is his return to Rwanda: a searing book that is both an eyewitness account f the failure of humanity to stop the genocide, and the story of General Dallaire's own struggle to find a measure of peace, reconciliation and hope.
