Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children


When you’ve been to hell and back, how do you shake the memories? This question has haunted General Roméo Dallaire since 1994, when he was UN Force Commander during the Rwandan genocide, explored in the award-winning documentary “Shake Hands with the Devil”.
Now Dallaire has found a reason to live: embarking on a global mission to eradicate the use of child soldiers. Will Dallaire succeed where others have failed? Or will he once again be forced to look on as the world turns away?


  • They Fight Like Soldiers is compelling, moving and insightful that exposes the problem of child soldiers in all its dimensions

  • With his tremendous compassion, tenacity, and crusading spirit, Dallaire has earned the public's respect and admiration in a way few Canadian public figures ever have. Given the heaviness of its subject, many will choose not to read this book. Yet the world ignored Dallaire once before, with terrible consequences. This time he deserves our full attention
