So many things we take or granted are lost when we are thrown back into a primitive state of living where day-to-day survival is not just about avoiding the enemy’s bullets, but also about enduring the elements without all the normal comforts of civilization. In this novel, we see how it might be and bears the question of how you would endure in a post apocalyptic world.
H. Berkeley Rourke writing style is unique, his attention to military detail worthy of praise, and his character development strong. If you liked the movie "Red Dawn," you are going to love this one.
I thought the author was spot on with how a nuclear war could be triggered and how clusters of militia could and would cause territorial wars within the different countries. I can't say that I would have handled the NSI in the same manner as the book portrayed. During war, an act of treason is grounds for death. I felt the writer made his ruthless killers a little too forgiving towards those who surrendered. Still, I admire the goodness of his lead characters and the thirst they had for peace.
This was a very technical book in regards to the weapons and guerrilla warfare. I understood the story was consumed with battles because it paralleled the life that had become “normal” for the main man, Will. However, I found I wanted to know everyone on a more intimate level than I was allowed… at least until I realized that sense of disconnect and isolation was probably intentional in order to bring the feel of the war to life. I am sure the way Will and his family had to live felt very harsh and forsaken in many ways.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys military stories or war tales with tactical strategies and a sense of patriotism.
