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.

"Dallaire's sorrow and anger is impressive. The object of this book is to promote and publicise his Child Soldier Initiative. Reading it is tough, but so are the lives of children who are forced to kill" ( The Times)
"Part mea culpa, part manifesto, part appeal for the reader's support, the book is a rallying call for those whose common humanity is affronted by the image of children brainwashed, bullied and exploited into becoming killing machines" ( Daily Mail)
"Do you kill children who kill? Romeo Dallaire's heart-shredding They Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children examines that question in relentless, exhausting detail. The case for more muscular, moral intervention in foreign lands could hardly be better made than it is here" ( Sunday Times)
"It's Dallare's highlighting of the enormous potential each and every one of us has in helping eradicate this terrible global practice that resonates most effectively. For that reason alone the author is to be congratulated and this book welcomed" ( Sunday Herald)
The #1 international bestselling author and former General who commanded the UN forces in Rwanda tackles the harrowing subject of child soldiers
