I used him as a symbol of the indifference of the UN and of the ignorance of Africa. All the inner emotion he put into the book allowed for others to delve deeper into his personality. This eBook is no longer available for sale. The book is an affidavit for an indictment — an indictment of the murderers, the hamstrung, bureaucratized UN, and the self-absorbed developed world. Frameup : Used in one of the most depicable ways possible: it is speculated that the RGF had framed the RPF for the murders and gang-rape of six young children. Tragic Hero : Dallaire, oh so much.

He also chronicles his own progression from confident Cold Warrior to devastated UN commander, and finally to retired general struggling painfully, and publicly, to overcome posttraumatic stress disorder—the highest-ranking officer ever to share such experiences with readers.

While the rest of the Shake hands with the devil book refuses to see the scope of the genocide and take action, Dallaire is in the thick of it from start to finish. They were right.

When he arrived in Kigali, a few months before the genocide began, the mandate of Unamir seemed perfectly simple: to provide protection for the Tutsi rebels of the Rwandan Patriotic Front, stemming from the exiles in Uganda who were negotiating a peaceful transition to democracy with the Habyarimana regime.
