Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children
Former UN Force Commander General Roméo Dallaire travels to the Congo, Rwanda and South Sudan on a mission to end 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?
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. Now, Dallaire has found a reason to live: embarking on a global mission to end the use of child soldiers. 300,000 children, boys and girls are fighting in 30 conflicts around the world. Dellaire begins his journey in the Congo, moving across Rwanda and into South Sudan, to meet recently demobilized child soldiers, and their commanders, looking for ways to rehabilitate and comfort those trained to kill at a young age.
