I appreciated Dallaire's style. I understand, firsthand, the frustration of having a job to do, without having the tools necessary to do it well. What I can't fathom, is how it would feel to be in Dallaire's place, entrusted with keeping the peace between two belligerents, while being denied the resources necessary to do the job - and then having to try to protect a country of 8 million from slaughter with a force of , many of whom were under trained and all of whom were under equipped.
What Dallaire makes evident to the reader is the indifference of the rest of the world to the violence in Rwanda.
Shaharyar Khan, who headed UMAMIR from early July onward, wrote "The fact is that never in living history has such wanton brutality been inflicted by human beings on their fellow creatures The West was still recovering from this shock when the genocide began in Rwanda, and was gun shy about sending troops into Africa again.
When I was there I went to the Genocide Museum and Memorial and was both fascinated and appalled that this happened. Since I didn't have much knowledge of the incident, I was in 12th grade when it happened, I decided to read this book as it was highly rated.
I'm very glad I did. As is the case with most nonfiction books there is a bit of history on the author and where they came from, etc. This is kept fairly short in this book and is also relevant to the story and interesting.
When Dillaire starts the story of what happened in Rwanda you can tell its not going to end well and he does not hide the bitterness and pain that his 1 yr experience in living hell left him with. Be forewarned this book is very graphic and pulls no punches. The detail in which the actual genocide is detailed and how some of the acts were perpetrated is not for the faint of heart, no pictures are needed and thankfully not included.
To be honest there were a few times that some of the details in this book kept me up at night and brought a sense how we "civilized" Nations could have just sat back and , people be slaughter in days. The detail in this book is not written simply to shock the reader, but rather to inform you the reader of the brutality and complete hatred that was so prevalent during this event.
This book also does a phenomenal job of also describing the excruciating effects on the UN Peacekeepers and Dillaire that witnessing so much death and destruction had on them. I walked away from reading this book mad that the UN and the "leader" nations of the world didn't give a damn about Rwanda and as is continually demonstrated the African continent.
If you decide to download this book, and I highly recommend that you do, you will understand why I made that last statement. I enjoyed this book immensely and also came away better understanding the sense of abandonment that so many developing countries feel from Western culture and nations, and the continual issues that past colonialism in Africa is still causing today.
