Descrição do produto
In Book 1 Army Colonel Tom Bradley takes command of a band of survivors in the aftermath of an EMP attack. A nuclear war spreads over much of the world. The survivors take refuge inside an underground complex in Nevada where the mismatch of personalities struggle to survive the resulting nuclear winter while living confined inside a mountain under siege by lethal radiation levels and other survivors fighting for water and food. The survivors adapt to living without the technology they once depended on. Warning - you will find in this book that the aftermath of an EMP attack is not pretty.
TEOTWAWK. "The end of the world as we know it" This ring true when a new US missile defense measure causes a nuclear-tipped Chinese rocket test to change course and target Beijing. In the heat of the moment, a Chinese missile officer triggers the release of an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) device in Earth orbit as part of the nation's deterrent to a pre-emptive attack. The incident triggers the release of nuclear weapons that brings the dreaded nuclear winter that circles the globe for four years. Ninety percent of the Earth's population will perish in the aftermath.
The EMP series realistically depicts the life of a group of survivors living underground in the wake of an EMP and nuclear attack that destroys electronic devices and the electric power grids over much of the world. The story follows the life of a group of survivors sheltered inside the unused Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository at Jackass Flats, Nevada. At the same time, book one of the EMP series depicts what to expect in such a dreadful event that could happen at the hands of a rogue nation. North Korea, Iran, or even terrorists can deliver such a device on board a ship or even a backpack from across the border of a targeted nation. It could be a matter of when rather than a matter of if. In any case, the desperate efforts to survive following such an attack will be brutal above all imagination.
