Book Description

1 Sep 2010
On the 22nd of April 1995 more than 4,000 Rwandans were massacred and thousands more injured in a place called Kibeho. Terry Pickard, a seasoned soldier and medic, was one of a 32-strong force of UN peacekeepers in Kibeho on that terrible Saturday. While the United Nations’ presence prevented the death toll from being even worse than it was, the massacre continues to haunt him. The rules of engagement that stopped him from intervening in the senseless slaughter and the life and death decisions he was forced to make when dealing with the injured condemned him to more than a decade of recurring nightmares and debilitating flashbacks. The horror and unimaginable tragedy of the Kibeho Massacre still looms large in the lives of Rwandans and the people sent to help the African country. No one who walked away from that day was ever the same again. Combat Medic is a personal account of one soldier who found himself at the centre of events that shocked the world, and the personal toll that he paid. Terry Pickard’s army career spanned nearly 20 years. More than 15 years after Rwanda he continues to struggle with post traumatic stress triggered by his experiences. In 2005 those who served in Rwanda and the UN peacekeeping mission were informed that their service had been upgraded to “warlike’’. Very few of them had ever doubted it.

very revealing, interesting story about what some of our Armed forces have to face and undergo whilst deployed for their country. No wonder our troops return with PTSD and they never recover from the traumas and devastation they have faced. I can understand what Terry 's and other Wives go through as my Husband was a medic in Vietnam

It is a very narrative true story of a UN soldier unable to use his power to save civilian that were butchered in front of him. To have the courage to write it and tell the rest of the world how cold blooded RPF criminal army in Rwanda can get away with.
