When Lt. General Rom-O 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 War. 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.'
