They Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children
Lt. General Romeo Dallaire served as force commander of the UN mission to Rwanda but instead of achieving peace there as he set out to do, he and his force were caught up in a vortex of civil war and genocide. Dallaire left Rwanda a broken man, disillusioned, suicidal. He told his story in the award-winning international sensation Shake Hands with the Devil. Now, in the same personal and impassioned tone, he speaks up for those without a voice -- the children who don't choose to fight, but who are simply born into soldiering.
