WAITING FOR THE LIGHT: MY ONGOING BATTLE WITH PTSD
By ROMEO DALLAIRE

Another bestseller from the Governor General Award winning author of "Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda", where Romeo Dallaire first spoke of his battle with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in relation with his UN Command during the Rwandan genocide. This latest book is a harsh, descriptive, self-portrait of how deeply combat and war can mentally and emotionally affect those that serve, from the lowest private all the way up to a 3 star General in the Canadian military. It was an incredible read and a real eye-opener to the deep scars and wounds many of our Military carry away from a conflict, which can seriously affect them for years afterwards.
