Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap


The threat from an electromagnetic pulse attack on our critical infrastructures either from an impending solar storm of serious intensity expected between 2012 and 2014 or a high-altitude nuclear explosion are threats that could have long-term catastrophic consequences for our society and our way of life.


"A Nation Forsaken" breaks down that threat. It even outlines how our own military similarly is vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse event due to its 99 percent dependency on the Nation's electrical grid system for electricity and communications, raising the high prospect that it may not be able to function to defend the Nation in its time of greatest need.

About the Author

F. Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, has almost 30 years of federal service in the U.S. Defense Department and as a specialized trainer for border guards and Special Forces in select countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia. While with the Department of Defense, Maloof was Director of Technology Security Operations as head of a 10-person team involved in halting the diversion of militarily-critical technologies to countries of national security and proliferation concern and those involved in sponsoring terrorism. His office was the liaison to the intelligence and enforcement community within the Office of the Secretary of Defense in halting diversions and using cases that developed from them as early warnings to decision-makers of potential policy issues. Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the United States, Maloof was detailed back to report directly to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy to prepare analysis of worldwide terrorist networks, determine their linkages worldwide and their relationship to state sponsors. Prior to his career at the Defense Department, Maloof was a legislative assistant to various U.S. Senators specializing in national security and international affairs. In between working at the U.S. Senate and the Defense Department, Maloof was a special Washington correspondent for The Detroit News, a reporter for a specialized newsletter at U.S. News & World Report and Washington correspondent for The Union Leader in Manchester, NH. Maloof makes his home in Reston, Va., with his family, including their 135-lb red Doberman.

Just finished reading this book cover to cover. As a person who has studied EMP - and implemented post-EMP survival strategies for my loved ones - I found this book to be very informative, in particular Chapter 9 dealing with what you can do to be prepared, as well as the printed overview of the EMP Commission Executive Report (2004). Here is a list of the chapters in this well written book;
Chapter one: A direct attack on our nations capital
Two: The eastern united states - someday soon
Three: Our nation's core vulnerability - the power grid
Four: A direct hit - from the sun
Five: The route back to the nineteenth century
Six: Why haven't we been told?
Seven: What is the current threat assessment?
Eight: We can still do the right thing
Nine: One second after - literally
Plus Appendix's and end notes

The book is well written, and very appropriate for today's reliance upon sensitive electronics. The title is a bit gloomier than it should be, as we do have methods to better prepare for an EMP attack. We just need to convince our public officials to improve our defensive posture.

Damage that could be caused by an EMP would devastate the United States and set it back a century. A potential EMP could occur naturally through major sunspots or through a terrorist attack. A Nation Forsaken tells how the United States government has basically ignored this threat and is far from prepared to survive one. This should scare every thinking person and generate a groundswell of grassroots support to encourage our government to take this seriously and start hardening our electronics that are vital to our nations defense so they will be able to survive such an event.

I think everybody should read this book. If you think you are safe and things can't go bad for this country you are very wrong. Check into this book, it will show you what you might expect when an EMP takes place and there is a list of survival equipment that might help you make it through it all. I would highly recommend it to any serious prepper or survivalist.

This book was excellent. It really gave me a much larger grasp on the threats surrounding both emp-bombs and solar flares. This book is very much worth purchasing, and anyone who wants to know more about the possible threats of an EMP must read this. The author is very concise and keeps the book very organized, as well as creating excellent scenarios that make the threat real.

This is a book that must be read by all Americans that love their country. So many do not realize where we are heading if we don't wake up to what is happening in our nation and around the world. Although this book is a tough read it is well worth the time to digest what is being said.

The facts about EMP and how the government is hiding from the truth. Let's hope we never get first hand experience, unfortunately we probably will someday.

This book should be thrown at the head of every congressman, DOD,DOE, HOMELAND SECURITY DIRECTOR, and the president in hopes they'll absorb the seriousness of the threat before us. As a geographer, educator, and writer I thought A Nation Forsaken was brilliantly explained with clear consequences if our government leaders continue to ignore the warning signs.
