5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Addition to more factual books about Chernobyl, 10 Mar 2012

This review is from: Chernobyl: Confessions of a Reporter (Hardcover)
"We had even sent a very sophisticated German robot to the plant's roof. But he refused to obey - the radioactivity had disturbed even the machines. Afterwards, he rolled over to the edge of the roof and threw himself from the top of the plant. One might have thought he had jumped"
There are many more of those personal anecdotes.

Splendid read and superb images. Fully Recommended.
It doesn't explain any of the backgrounds why this happened, you would need to research all this or buy a book that closes this gap.
But if you want to get an idea how it was on the ground, dealing with the catastrophe then this is the right book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chernobyl: confessions of a reporter, 11 Sep 2012

This review is from: Chernobyl: Confessions of a Reporter (Hardcover)
This book takes the "reader" on a journey through one of the worst nuclear accidents in human history. The pictures are astounding, although not always of the best quality the subject matter is sure to provoke emotion. The short texts that narrate the story shown in the pictures really brings home the human tragedy that unfolded and is still unfolding.
An extremely interesting and informative book. A must for anyone with even a passing interest in this incident.
