As the title says it's a book about a failure of humanity, a grim account of the civil war and genocide in Rwanda written by the head of UNAMIR UN assistance mission for Rwanda peacekeepers general Romeo Dellaire.
While reading a detailed story of the events in Rwanda can be an eye-opener by itself, Dellaire's book provides a unique viewpoint. Being a highest-ranking UN military official stationed in Rwanda since he gives a first-hand account of the political events, which involved Rwandan leaders, UN officials and several major countries, showing the utter failure to prevent the war before it errupted or to mitigate the subsequent horrible events.
Dellaire's idealism it was his first mission abroad adds a constant sense of conscience to the story, making it a personal story and not just a chronicle of events.
It's a story of a war and a genocide, of propaganda and hatred, of peacekeeping and postcolonialism, of heroism and resolve, of helplesness, trauma and indeciseveness, of tens of thousands women and children massacred. It's an engaging read, but far from a pleasant one, even if you exclude graphic details of the genocide. This is however the main point of the book, to face unpleasant truths and horrors of what happened in Rwanda 20 years ago and is still hapenning around the world this way or another.
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.
