About this book

Before 25 December 2004, while many people knew what a tsunami was, few had any idea of the wholesale destruction that one could cause. All of that changed as a powerful earthquake deep in the Indian Ocean triggered the deadliest tsunami in history. Over an area of more than 2,000 miles, entire towns were flattened and at least 150,000 people swept to their deaths as the giant wave devastated everything in its path. This book, illustrated with powerful photography and containing dozens of graphic eyewitness accounts, chronicles in detail the terrifying events surrounding one of the worst natural disasters in modern history.
