Descriere

A FINALIST FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING

The first book of reportage from the front line of the Ukraine war. This is a powerful, moving first draft of history written by the award-winning Guardian journalist and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Collusion and Shadow State.

'An excellent, moving account of an ongoing tragedy.' ANNE APPLEBAUM

'Compelling, important and heartbreaking.' SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE

'Essential reading.' ELIOT HIGGINS, founder of Bellingcat

'Brilliant.' ANDREY KURKOV

For months, the omens had pointed in one scarcely believable direction: Russia was about to invade Ukraine. And yet, the world was stunned by the epochal scale of the assault that began in February 2022. It was an attempt by one nation to devour another.

Invasion is Luke Harding’s compelling chronicle of the war that changed everything. For this breathtaking work of reportage he spent months reporting on the ground during the build up to the conflict and afterward; his book tells of the initial days of shock and panic, the grim reality of this ongoing war, and the unheard human stories behind the headlines. Invasion also offers insightful portraits of the the war's two great personalities. One, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, is an actor-turned-president who rallied support on a global stage. The other, Vladimir Putin, is a dictator who dwells in a strange and unreachable realm. Harding examines the ideological, religious and personal reasons behind Putin's decision to invade. And he confronts a crucial question: which side will prevail in this terrible war?

With the ripple effects of the largest armed conflict in Europe since 1945 already being felt beyond Ukraine and Russia’s borders, it is more vital than ever to understand how the situation on the front line will have profound effects for us all. Written in Luke Harding’s starkly transfixing style, Invasion makes for essential reading.

*Includes a brand new chapter for the paperback edition*

Remarkable first-hand record of the devastation wrought by Putin's war. Harding is at his best with vivid and haunting on-the-ground reporting from Mariupol to Bucha and the stories of Ukrainians whose lives have been smashed by Putin's imperial land grab. A vital account of Putin's war crimes that should never be forgotten. -- Catherine Belton ― author of PUTIN'S PEOPLE

Luke Harding has once again written a superb first draft of history, this time of the Ukrainian war. An excellent, moving account of an ongoing tragedy. -- Anne Applebaum ― author of RED FAMINE

Compelling, important and heartbreaking with all the urgency and immediacy of outstanding war reportage, here is the Russian invasion of Ukraine minute by minute, political and personal, from the cabinets of power to the streets and apartments of ordinary Ukrainians by a master reporter and analyst. -- Simon Sebag Montefiore ― author of THE ROMANOVS: THE STORY OF THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE

Brilliant . . . Harding is one of the best experts on Putin's Russia. Invasion reads like an exciting military-political thriller, but all its characters and events are true. -- Andrey Kurkov

Luke Harding yet again provides unique insight into his chosen topic, this time the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, providing a stirring account of the build up to the invasion and the invasion itself. Essential reading for those who want to understand the most important conflict of the 21st Century. -- Eliot Higgins ― author of WE ARE BELLINGCAT

The definitive story of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, based on extensive reporting from the frontline. Harding is an excellent writer and witness who deftly tells the moving human stories of victims in this terrible war. He also explains to us why Putin embarked on this foolhardy invasion. -- Bill Browder

Invasion will become an important part of the historical record. It is extremely well written, a fast read, and offers an excellent balance between personal encounters and the broader sequence of events. ― Financial Times

Elegantly written, deeply researched and essential reading. -- Lyse Doucet ― Observer

Harding’s account is a very good first historical draft. And it’s really not so rough. His judgments will last – and, sadly, they will be relevant for a long time to come. -- Michael Clarke ― Guardian 'Book of the Day'

As first drafts of history go, this is as definitive as they come. -- Jeremy Cliffe ― New Statesman

Visceral reportage from the Ukrainian frontline from the eminent foreign correspondent and author of the brilliant Mafia State. ― i newspaper

Harding is an authority on Russian espionage and state politics . . . This is his visceral and highly illuminating chronicle of the Ukraine war to date, excavating the narratives of two very different leaders, and delving into the ideological, religious and personal reasons driving Putin . . . Essential reading for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of what is at stake. ― The Bookseller

Harding is uniquely qualified to tell this story. He was in Kyiv when the invasion began and has spent much of the last year in the country. He's a gifted storyteller, and his moment-by-moment reconstructions of the events in Bucha, and of the last stand of Mariupol's Azovstal steel plant, stand out as almost excruciatingly harrowing. -- Joshua Keating ― Washington Post

Very impressive, displaying [Harding's] capacity to get people talking, to observe their reactions when under fire and to endure danger, distress and discomfort. Harding is eloquent, moving and supremely credible. -- Donald Rayfield ― Literary Review

Gripping and often moving . . . goes beyond mere reportage as Mr. Harding draws on his knowledge of the region and a background that includes serving as head of the Guardian’s Moscow bureau. ― Wall Street Journal
