World War III is not a matter of if; it is a matter of when. The effects of an EMP attack as described in this EMP series are real and depict what to expect when the terrorist organization Al Qaeda, ISIS, a radical religious group, or a rogue nation such as North Korea or Iran hits the United States with an EMP device aboard a freighter arriving in a major city. No one talks about the consequences of such an attack because they are so horrific. EMP - Nuclear Winter, book 1 in the EMP series brings to life what to expect. The book is fiction only because in real life the next world war has yet to occur. A frenzy of nuclear bomb exchanges occurs a few days after the EMP attack, releasing nuclear fallout that creates a nuclear winter environment that worsens the hopes of survival, humans, and animals alike. A group of survivors is sheltered in a technological environment inside Yucca Mountain, originally intended to store nuclear waste, to ensure their survival on a planet that in the time-span of one-second reentered the Stone Age. Outside their shelter, survivors fight for water and food that within the year results in the death of 90% of the people on earth. The EMP series realistically depicts the life of the survivors living underground in the aftermath of an EMP and nuclear attack that destroys electronic devices and the electric power grids over much of the world. Book One takes the reader through the attack and realistically addresses logistics, security, survivor selection, social, cultural, education, and other issues required to prepare a society capable of rebuilding a nation devoid of the technology they once depended on. Warning - you will find in this book that the aftermath of an EMP attack is not pretty.
