Window into Seige of Sarajevo

I've read a few books similar to this - General Romeo Dallaire's amazing Shake Hands with the Devil (Rwanda) - A Problem from Hell (America in the Age of Genocide) - We Did Nothing (about the failures of the UN, and the ridiculous bureaucracy that prevents the people on the ground from doing anything) This book is the memoir of a soldier who spent a tour in a city under siege, and came back damaged as the result of his experiences there. In some ways similar to Shake Hands with The Devil, but Gen Dallaire kept his personal nightmare out of the pages, instead focusing on the tragedy of Rwanda. Fred Doucette doesn't do that, and goes into detail on the hell he went through, and put his family through, on his return. I've known people who were living in Sarajevo during the siege, and this account rings true with what they've told me.
