"It's early 1990s and three young people, working for the UN and Red Cross in Cambodia, become friends in the heady atmosphere of the country's first democratic elections. All of them have been attracted to peace-keeping, in countries both dangerous and alluring, for different reasons. Heidi is in need of a challenge and a pay cheque, Ken is full of idealism and Andrew strives to create a better world through his work as a doctor. As the Cold War ends and the New World Order dawns the three become friends for life. But their journey through a violent decade, from Rwanda and Bosnia to Somalia and Haiti, challenges their lives and personalities, leaving them utterly changed - both broken and enriched. In this powerful, devastatingly honest memoir, Andrew, Heidi and Ken mingle their distinct voices to paint a searing portrait of life amidst war and genocide, whilst giving eye-witness accounts of the thousands of lives that have been destroyed in countries such as Rwanda by the inactivity and greed of the West"--Back cover.
