An astonishing deep dive into the war in Ukraine – from the corridors of the Kremlin to the trenches of Mariupol The Russo-Ukrainian War is the most serious geopolitical crisis since World War II – and yet at the heart of the conflict is a mystery. Vladimir Putin lurched from a calculating, subtle master of opportunity to a reckless gambler, putting his regime – and Russia itself – at risk of destruction. Why? Drawing on over 25 years' experience working in Moscow, journalist Owen Matthews provides the answer. He takes us inside the Covid bubble where Putin conceived his invasion plans in a fog of nationalist fantasy and bad information – and into the inner circle around Ukrainian president and unexpected war hero Volodimir Zelensky. Using the testimonies of captured Russian conscripts and the last journalists in besieged Mariupol, Overreach uncovers what unfolded on the ground, while interviews with Putin's close network pull back the curtain on the decision-making process inside the Kremlin. With its panoramic view, Overreach is the authoritative, unmissable account of the conflict that shocked Europe to its core.
