The book's storyline is relative to today's political scene which is great; however the biggest thing I took away from the story were some down to earth skills we might need in the future. Velocity has some extensive military experience however I never felt lost as he wove tactics and described battle scenes throughout the novel.
This one is a must for you prepper minded folks.
Some will probably criticize the story for simplistic character development or other literary knocks. I thought the story was decent. I'm a technical and science writer, not a composer of prose, so I wouldn't knock Max's story for those kinds of things. You read a book like this for the information, just like most people read Rawles' "Patriots" for that reason too.
If you liked Patriots, I think you'll like Patriot Dawn, too. Patriot Dawn is kind of like Patriots, from the part where the UN comes to Bovil, Idaho onward. Patriot Dawn has less detail about some of the technical things, but much much greater detail in describing small unit tactics. Read this book to understand that stuff better.
Great job as far as I'm concerned, and I will be getting the 2nd book in the series whenever it comes out. (there is a bit of a cliffhanger ending)
Thanks Max for a great read. Looking forward to the next supplement. Hope to meet you in training sometime.
if you're looking for a WROL instruction manual in a format that is easier to digest than a Field Manual format, then buy one.
Buy one for your friends and family, too.
Then take copious notes.
"A major jihadist attack on Washington D.C. allows the administration to turn the U.S. into a police state by basically stripping the citizenry of their rights. The story follows one man and his family who has prepared for an event such as this. Using his skill as a former army ranger, he fights back. He also uses a former military contact to help him form and lead a patriot unit.
I won't say any more specifically regarding the novel, but want to let you know that Patriot Dawn opened my eyes to how unprepared I am. I thought I had planned fairly well but there are skills that I still need to learn and hone. Even more important, there is a mindset I need to develop in order to be prepared for a crisis event be it natural disaster, economic collapse or a synopsis of what I just described.
This not something you can do on your own, you need to form a community and to plan for any event. I thought I knew that before but now even more so.
This novel will open your eyes and while it is entertaining, it also will help you gain insight relative to what skills and what sustenance plans you need to make in order to survive."

I wanted to like this book (manual?) but the plot is thin, the characters one-dimensional, and the writing stilted. So bad I almost rooted for the Regime to prevail.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
