Written by William R. Forstchen, this is a fictional story about an atmospheric nuclear attack on the United States that delivers three electromagnetic pulse blasts which knocks out America's power grid, killing virtually all electrical equipment: automobiles, computers, phones, radios, televisions, etc. The story is set in a small town in North Carolina, following a retired Colonel as he, the town and the Nation grapple with the aftermath. The town is able to maintain some semblance of order and government, but as food supplies dwindle and refugees stream in, things quickly devolve. The Colonel maintains his humanity and values in the face of the struggle, even when confronted with a brutal, murdering gang that has resorted to cannibalism.

While this is purely fiction, it serves as a cautionary tale since it is a scenario that could play out one day. It may also cause the reader to wonder if they could survive in the aftermath of such an attack, and how well prepared are you should society break down near the brink of anarchy.

A good read, overall.... 352 pages in the hardcover edition.

Running has an uncanny ability to mellow the soul, to take the edge off hard feelings, and put things back into healthy perspective.
Yeah, it's a 50 caliber. They used to use it to hunt buffalo with... up close! It's only legal in two states. And this isn't one of them.

Bought this a couple months ago and read it in one weekend. Scared the shit out of me.
