One Second After - A Book of Surviving an EMP

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 166

One second after is a book by William R. Forstchen about the aftermath of a nuclear bomb being detonated over the United States causing a massive EMP that takes out the power grid.

It all starts with the main character John Matherson after all power goes out in a small town.John realizes rather quickly that this isn't an ordinary power outage but the effects of an EMP as not only is power out but electrical devices no longer work, nor do most new cars.

One John realizes this many things begin to happen in the small town they live in.Hundreds of travelers are stranded on the freeway and everyone is wondering what is going on.Almost immediately some of the more negative side of our nature comes out and it's clear there are going to be problems.

John is a professor of history as well as a well seasoned military man and through the book he puts both of these skills to use trying to save as many people as possible as people face a variety of perils caused by the lack of water.

They have to contend with sickness, lack of medicine, food shortages as well as those that try to take by force.They are themselves forced to make tough decisions as a town to keep as many people alive as they can and secure their town from being overrun.

This book is so compelling you will not only read it, but once you have you will share it with others.Whether you are someone who believes the government is here to help you or you think the government doesn't do well when a major crisis happens this book is a good read.

It is very thought provoking with very believable scenarios about how life in America will be if we were to go backwards 100+ years to a time without all the moder conveniences we all come to value in our daily lives.We go about our day to day lives without a though in the world about how life would be if we didn't have our iPads, cell phones and computers.

I hope that if you get this book you will like it as much as I have and share it with others.I believe every person that reads this will think about at least having a 3 day survival kit if not a month so that we don't have quite so much reliance on the government and more accountability for our own security.

At you will find a wide variety of survival products for everyone from urban survivalist to the hard core emergency prepper. We have Gas Masks, Survival food and much more available. You can find this book HERE.
