    Wow, just finished this book and I must say it was an interesting read Definitely look forward to readingof Johnstone s books Although I don t think America will go quite so blatantly, I m fairly sure the Germans didn t expect to see their leader lead them down the course he took them either And not with such celerity.

    I was split on this book It reminded me of the TV series Jericho which I liked a ton However, I felt that the timeline of events was far too rushed America as we know it basically ceased to exist in four months or so and all without being attacked The left wing president caused the destruction by his policies and it seemed too unlikely to me to keep me engaged in the early portions of the story As it progressed and action picked up I enjoyed itFrom what I understand, it s t I was split on this book It reminded me of the TV series Jericho which I liked a ton However, I felt that the timeline of events was far too rushed America as we know it basically ceased to exist in four months or so and all without being attacked The left wing president caused the destruction by his policies and it seemed too unlikely to me to keep me engaged in the early portions of the story As it progressed and action picked up I enjoyed itFrom what I understand, it s the start of a new series and I will probably enjoy the books to comethan this one

    Absolutely one of scariest books I ever read I feel like the story was picked out of the current time in the United States We must save the United States and improve itnot thru current administration but through an administration that cares and loves what we stand for.individual liberties w ogovernment control.

    I have to look at this as an alternate universe novel in that it turns the United States upside down in ways I don t think could ever happen in reality Things are neither as bad as the conservative side paint them or as good as the liberal side would have us believe.The author doesn t just take a jab at Obama, but gives him a full out bludgeoning.America has elected a new President, a man who s a naturalized citizen a new law allowed it , Mother American, father Pakistani I m not sure whether t I have to look at this as an alternate universe novel in that it turns the United States upside down in ways I don t think could ever happen in reality Things are neither as bad as the conservative side paint them or as good as the liberal side would have us believe.The author doesn t just take a jab at Obama, but gives him a full out bludgeoning.America has elected a new President, a man who s a naturalized citizen a new law allowed it , Mother American, father Pakistani I m not sure whether the author deliberately ignored it or just doesn t know the law A child with one American parent is not a naturalized citizen, but a REAL American.President Ohmshidi lets America know in his inaugural address that every American soldier based outside of the States would be brought home immediately That overloaded the base, strained facilities, and demoralized the troops.His next move is to stop domestic oil drilling, importation of crude oil from OPEC, all refining of crude oil What oil the country had would have to do The idea, says the President, is to force scientist to develop cleaner, greener, methods of energy.All it produced was chaos All manufacturing stopped, all airlines were grounded, no food was getting to places that needed it, hospital facilities were running out of needed drugs.Three boat lods of food supplies sent to America from an Islamic nation had nuclear weapons on board They detonated at the same time one in New York, one In Boston, and the third in Norfolk At the same time, bombs went off in England, Spain, France, Germany, and three into Israel A new world order of Islamic terrorists were setting up shop.The book focuses on two groups of Americans struggling to survive Major Jake Lantz sees it all coming and begins making preparations before the army is completely decimated A former Amish that left the order, Jake is well versed in living without the amenities the rest of us take for granted He assembles a group, all experts in various things, diverts supplies to a holding area, and picks out a spot set up camp an old abandoned Civil War fort in southern Alabama.The second group is headed by Robert Varney, ex military of the Viet Nam era, now a writer He lives in an area of fairly expensive homes, but he and a few other older couples are the only permanent residents Together, they begin looking in those empty homes for propane, food, and anything else useful.The two groups end up together and setting up home as the country is going to hell.It ended such that it might be the first of a new series I can see how it could go the route that the late William Johnstone s Ashes series went, Americans fighting to reclaim a crumbling country

    Enjoyed this book It takes America to a scary place While I don t think things will ever get as bad as predicted in this book, it does show what can happen if the government gets too much control.
