The number one international bestseller chosen as Nonfiction Book of the Year and winner of the Shaughnessy-Cohen prize; for political writing. A harrowing and ultimately redemptive war memoir by the General who commanded the UN forces in Rwanda, Dallaire's book is an invaluable contribution to the perennially popular genre of war literature.
Rom-o Dallaire joined the Canadian Army in 1964. A three star General, he served as Deputy Commander of the Canadian Army and later in the Ministry of Defence. General Dallaire was medically released from the armed forces in April 2000 due to posttraumatic stress disorder and is now special adviser to the Canadian government on war-affected children and the prohibition of small arms distribution. In January 2002, he received the inaugural Aegis Award for Genocide Prevention in London.
"Shake Hands With The Devil is one of the saddest books I have ever read and one of the most heart-breaking eye-witness accounts.A kind of naive and painfully honest confession of the failure of an organisation, a meticulous description of one of the worst betrayals in the history of humanity." * Guardian * "indisputably the best account of the whole terrible Rwandan genocide" * The Sunday Times * "Although this is a deeply personal book, it is undoubtedly an important historical record of the UN's failure in Rwanda and an impassioned plea against the moral cowardice that allowed the genocide to happen." * The Independent *
