Midnight in Chernobyl: The Story of the World’s Greatest Nuclear Disaster

By Adam Higginbotham

Bantam Press, £20, hardback, 560 pages

More than 30 years on, the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster continues to fascinate and appal in equal measure. Some of this fascination is due to the sheer magnitude of what happened: hundreds of people killed, and a cloud of radioactive material unleashed across parts of the Soviet Union and Europe. Y et the fascination is also due to the shroud of secrecy the regime created around the incident. In this new book, Adam Higginbotham attempts to separate fact from propaganda, drawing on more than a decade of firsthand interviews to create a new telling of an event whose ramifications are still felt today
