WSJ’s top correspondent releases book on war in Ukraine

Our Enemies Will Vanish: The Russian Invasion and Ukraine’s War of Independence is the newest book by Yaroslav Trofimov, the Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent at The Wall Street Journal. Trofimov’s book tour will begin in Washington, D.C. on January 11 at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace from 17:00 to 19:00 local time. The event will also be broadcast online via this link.

Yaroslav Trofimov was born and grew up in Kyiv. In 2022 and 2023, he was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in the international reporting category.

Our Enemies Will Vanish: The Russian Invasion and Ukraine’s War of Independence is on sale now, published by Penguin Press.

“Humane, informed, and reliable, this account of the first year of Russia’s war on Ukraine will be read by all who wish to understand this defining event of our time.” – Timothy Snyder, New York Times bestselling author of On Tyranny.

“His extraordinarily brave reporting, exceptionally clear writing and unusually trenchant analysis have made Yaroslav Trofimov one of the most important journalists covering the war in Ukraine – and now his book will become an essential first draft of the history of the war.” – Anne Applebaum, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Twilight of Democracy.

For Trofimov, this war is deeply personal. He grew up in Kyiv and his family has lived there for generations. With deep empathy and local understanding, Trofimov tells the story of how everyday Ukrainian citizens – doctors, computer programmers, businesspeople, and schoolteachers – risked their lives and lost loved ones. He blends their brave and tragic stories with expert military analysis, providing unique insight into the thinking of Ukrainian leadership and mapping out the decisive stages of what has become a perilous war for Ukraine, the Putin regime, and indeed, the world,” says a book review from The Wall Street Journal.

The book’s presentation will also take place in Houston, Texas, on January 18; Los Angeles, California, on January 22; New York, on January 24; and London, the United Kingdom, on January 31. Details can be found at the link, as well as on the author’s website.
