Resumo:

"When Romeo Dallaire was called on to serve as force commander of the UN Assistance Mission for Rwanda, he believed that his assignment was to help two warring parties achieve the peace they both desperately wanted. Instead, he was exposed to the most barbarous and chaotic display of civil war and mass execution in recent history, observing in just one hundred days the killings of more than eight hundred thousand Rwandans. With only a few troops and his own ingenuity and courage to direct his efforts, Dallaire rescued thousands, but his call for more support from the UN fell on deaf ears." "In Shake Hands with the Devil, General Dallaire takes the reader with him to Rwanda, recreating the awful events the world community chose to ignore. 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 post-traumatic stress disorder - the highest-ranking military officer ever to share such experiences with readers."--Jacket.
