In Foreign Enemies and Traitors, Matt Bracken has created a brilliant Atlas Shrugged like narrative of how this issue might play out amidst the economic meltdown now consuming us. Conservatives and libertarians throughout America will take to this tale like the colonists took to Tom Paine in 1776.
As the story begins, the Second Great Depression (what Bracken has dubbed the "Greater Depression") rages throughout America. The country is splitting up geographically with several secessionist movements in response to a radical leftist administration recently ushered into power in Washington. But the country has also been struck with a horrific earthquake that levels Memphis, TN and the surrounding Mississippi River valley. This causes massive panic made all the worse by hordes of refugees, pillaging war lords, and the inevitable reversion to barbarism that such societal collapses bring.
In response to the chaos resulting from the economic depression, the secessionist movements and the earthquake, America's President has invited "foreign troops" under the aegis of U.N. control into the country to try and suppress the rebels and establish a powerful centralized government again under Washington's grip.
Mr. Bracken thrusts into this mix a cast of heroic characters with names like Boone Vikersun and Phil Carson (think Daniel and Kit if your historical memory is sluggish) -- to fight a guerrilla war in, of all places, the state of Tennessee against the overweening powers of a grotesquely corrupt Washington. Pure gold!Read more ›
First was Enemies Foreign and Domestic. Shootings at a stadium result in a ban of all semiauto rifles. This leads to resistance and the story of several who participate to stop and expose the tyranny'
Those efforts are only partly successful. The situation gets worse.
In Domestic Enemies the Reconquista, we see the Southwest carved up by communist hispanics as the US continues to deteriorate. It is an intricate story of how people suffer much in order to be free.
Foreign Enemies and Traitors takes place in the aftermath of two catastrophic earthquakes in the Midwest. There have been further splits amongst the States. Foreign troops are enlisted to 'pacify' a rebellious West Tennessee. The rot is almost complete for the Republic and the country is on its way to take its place in a one world government.
Again, recurring and new characters resist. They are people of honor who willingly fight to begin restoring the Constitutional Republic.
They are folks with their own faults. These are true human beings.
Villains are shall I say, quite reminiscent of current real life traitors. The events are fictitious. But, they are plausible and illustrate what is happening re the destruction of our Freedom.
Socialism/communism is rotting the fabric that made us great. Traitors who have no regard for our Freedom have labored long to see to our demise and induction into worldwide socialism.
Matt has given us three great reads that are thought provoking and challenging.

I especially liked that the author takes the current news stories that we are all concerned about and takes them to their logical conclusion (why is the National Guard currently recruiting for "Internment and Relocation Specialists?" How will our creditors react when US defaults on the debt that is now mathematically impossible to repay? What will a post gun-confiscation America look like and what is the real reason for the second amendment? What will martial law look like? etc.) If you have ever thought about any of the above for more than 60 seconds or if you have reacted with skepticism at the mainstream media's explanation, then you will love this book.
The author is a former Navy SEAL and the details of the military operations described in the book are incredibly realistic. Some of your favorite characters from the previous two novels are still around, and although one could read this book without reading the previous two, I do not recommend doing so.
The icing on the cake is that the last 75 pages or so appear to have been written yesterday. The names have been changed to protect the TRAITORS but you'll recognize them all, and you will literally not be able to put the book down until you finish.
