In a small North Carolina town, one man struggles to save his family after America loses a war that will send it back to the Dark Ages.
Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based on a real weapon—the electromagnetic pulse (EMP)—which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States, literally within one second.
In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe, and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future and our end.
Amazing book. Even better narrator!
Great book. A must read for any prepper.
Must read or listen!
A must read book for any American if not only to realize the fragility of things and how quickly things can happen.
This is one of my favorite books of all time, even if it is chilling. I have been doing a lot of driving lately and decided to revisit it with an audiobook in the car, it was a good choice. I enjoyed this narrator very much. Difficult to stay in character for so many different voices, but with only a couple flubs, he pulled it off well.
