    Powerful

    This account of the event s during the genocide in Rwanda is powerful. Dalaire doesn't pull any punches as he chronicles the daily happenings, the requests for assistance from the United Nations and the international community, and the results of the inaction by the global community. The horrors he witnessed, the challenges his team faced, and the lives they did save all are documented. This book should be on everyone's list.

    An amazing read. The reader is taken to where the writer wants us to go and it is a very moving first-hand account of the genocide. It makes me realize just how fortunate we are in Australia. I would thoroughly recommend this book.

    Lessons need to be learned

    I enjoyed reading this book, but that said, it is not a happy story. I have never met a human being who did not consider him/herself to be civilized, so how can our society allow such poverty and inhumanity? It is to our everlasting shame that we obviously are not civilized. We ensure our life of oppulence and choose to ignore the plight of milions who are starving and suffering. This is uncivilized and perpetuates inhumanity.

    Disturbing book

    Just returned from Rwanda. A remarkable country with a very friendly and industrious population. Very deep contrast to their gruesome past. This book helped to put some of the pieces of the puzzle in place for me
