Winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize.  

The gripping story of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, from an acclaimed historian and
writer.

On the morning of 26 April 1986, Europe witnessed the worst nuclear disaster in
history: the explosion of a reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Soviet
Ukraine. The outburst put the world on the brink of nuclear annihilation. In the end,
less than 5 percent of the reactor's fuel escaped, but that was enough to contaminate
over half of Europe with radioactive fallout.  

In Chernobyl, Serhii Plokhy re-creates these events in all of their drama, telling the
stories of the firefighters, scientists, engineers, workers, soldiers and policemen
who found themselves caught in a nuclear Armageddon and succeeded in doing the
seemingly impossible: extinguishing the nuclear inferno and putting the reactor to
sleep. While it is clear that the immediate cause of the accident was a turbine test
gone wrong, Plokhy shows how the deeper roots of Chernobyl lay in the nature of the
Soviet political system and the flaws of its nuclear industry. A little more than five
years later, the Soviet Union would fall apart, destroyed from within by its
unsustainable communist ideology and the dysfunctional managerial and economic systems
laid bare in the wake of the disaster.

A poignant, fast-paced account of the drama of heroes, perpetrators and victims,
Chernobyl is the definitive history of the world's worst nuclear disaster.
