Read this book. It's only a matter of when, not if, a major disaster will strike the whole of America, if not most of the world. Read this book to get a grip on what it takes to survive a horrific event such as an EMD.
I have to mirror the post scripts thoughts. This was a gut wrenching and emotional story. Not just because of the story itself but because it is so very possible. It has seriously made me stop and think.
The EMP issue is interesting but the human behavior is thrilling. The way the writer talks about the march to battle, the hug to a fellow soldier in the worst moment is what makes this book a remarkable piece. The writer describes with the needed details, the specifics of an after battle which will give one goosebumps. It was hard not to talk about this book and not mention the catharsis suffered. Great book.
