The world had less than seven hours to prepare. When it hit, the coronal mass ejection from the sun rolled back hundreds of years of technological innovation. Airplanes fell from the skies. Power grids crashed. Even electrical cabling was turned to slag. No Internet. No cable TV. No electricity. No modern day conveniences of any kind, from fancy European sedans to smart phones to clean, running water.

I thought the book was too short for the price. I spent a lot of years in the Marines and I have trained with Seals. I don't believe the main character was a Seal at all.

Russ and Anne Mathews made their escape from their home, along with family, friends, and new friends they made along the way. Now, they must build a new life for themselves at the Warren farm, without the luxury of electricity and very few traces of the 21st century. The problem: there are a lot of people who didn't prepare for something like this, and some of those people will stop at nothing to take what the group has, by whatever means necessary.

Jack Bunker vowed to never step foot on another battlefield. But the former combat engineer’s new peaceful life in the Colorado mountains is shattered after an attack takes out America’s power grid. When suspicious activity plagues the nearby high-security military facility, Bunker fears he’ll soon have another war on his hands. As the story unfolds, Bunker suspects a foreign invasion is imminent, leaving him no other choice but to somehow transform the mild-mannered townsfolk into military-grade guerrilla warriors. He knows if their small town surrenders, America won’t be far behind.

Our stalwart survivors team up with others to defend what they have and bravely forage out to scavenge what’s left of society in a coastal city. Supplies are low, food is disappearing at an alarming rate, and game is getting scarce as desperate people do even more desperate things to survive.

This book was amazing and stuffed full of old ways of storing food. He also adds the recipes of important chemicals. I live very near where this story takes place and the stories places and the culture of the Southerners that live here are very accurate. I would like very much to meet Mr Foster.

The fight for Jason Delgado's life and soul began when he was just a boy. He ultimately escaped the death and drugs of a crime-riddled Bronx by way of the US Marine Corps. However, after earning his way into the esteemed ranks of the service's famed Scout Snipers, Delgado saw that old struggle reignited when he was dumped into the hell of war in Iraq. There Delgado proved not only a participant but a warrior capable of turning the tide in several of the most harrowing and historically important battles of the evolving war.

The United States may have just come to an end in this exciting post-apocalyptic, dystopian thriller about several electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks all at once. Not only has the electrical grid come crashing down, but all other critical infrastructures of the country have ceased to exist, leaving the country a vast wasteland, where only the ruthless and resourceful survive.

Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance---the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens. This world-famous best seller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eye of the Sphinx.
