The author, a Japanese journalist, presents a gripping, dramatic account of the 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station. His work covers the reality of the disaster from March 11 to March 18 and depicts the struggle to contain the damage to the six nuclear reactors that was caused by the gigantic tsunami. Interviews with Masao Yoshida, the superintendent of the power plant, plant employees, and other responders provide the basis for the narrative. The book makes clear the heroic efforts and power of the workers to confront a desperate situation. Simon Varnam is credited with the English translation.
