Format: Library Binding
Starting on March 11, 2011, Japan was hit by three interlocking disasters, any one of which would have been considered a disaster of historic scope. First of all, at 2:46 local time, a 9.0-maginitute earthquake struck, a mere 72 miles off the coast of the nation. This was one of the top 5 earthquakes in recorded history. Secondly, the earthquake resulted in a major tsunami that swept inland, destroying whole cities and sweeping many people to their deaths. And thirdly, the earthquake and tsunami caused so much damage to two nuclear power plants, that they suffered meltdowns and leaked radiation into the surrounding air and water. This book looks at the huge disaster, explaining each step of what happened, and what it meant.

Overall, I found this to be an interesting book. It does present a good overview of the disaster and what it meant. The author makes a good use of eyewitness reports, bringing a more human touch to the report.

This is a good introduction to the disaster, and worth checking out if you want a quick look at what happened.
