Midnight in Chernobyl (paperback)
"Midnight in Chernobyl is wonderful and chilling. . . . Adam Higginbotham tells the story of the disaster and its gruesome aftermath with thriller-like flair. . . . It is a tale of hubris and doomed ambition, featuring Communist party bosses and hapless engineers, victims and villains, confusion and cover-up." —The Guardian

From one of the most decorated pilots in Air Force history comes a masterful hour-by-hour account of Lindbergh’s death-defying nonstop transatlantic flight in the Spirit of St. Louis. Hampton draws on his unique perspective to bring alive the danger, uncertainty, and heroic accomplishment of Lindbergh’s crossing.
