Foreign correspondent Tim Judah tells the story of the human side of conflict in Europe’s second largest country, Ukraine.
Judah travelled from the Polish border in the west, through the capital city and to the eastern frontier near the Russian border. He spoke to the mothers, soldiers, businessmen, poets and politicians living through conflict and reveals a nation trapped between powerful political and historical forces.
‘Visceral, gripping, heartbreaking’ Simon Sebag Montefiore
Judah is Balkans correspondent for The Economist and has reported on war in Ukraine for both The Economist and theNew York Review of Books. He has covered many conflicts including the aftermath of communism in Eastern Europe, the Balkan Wars, Afghanistan and Iraq. He is also author of Kosovo: War and Revenge, The Serbs: History, Myth and the Destruction of Yugoslavia and Bikila: Ethiopia’s Barefoot Olympian.
