Book Description

In a matter of hours the unthinkable nightmare of biological, chemical and nuclear warfare has ravaged the world.
For millions it meant instant death, for others, a slow, agonizing, painful death from fallout and short lived viruses. A hundred years of civilization gone and the earth is now covered with a layer of dust squeezing out the life giving rays of the sun. Only pockets of survivors are left, each trying to scratch out an existence anyway they can. It meant hardships of every kind while stockpiling supplies and fighting off roving bands of those that thought nothing of raping and killing to get what they wanted.
The struggle was just beginning for Captain Randolph (Randy) Winters and his Titan II ICBM missile crew, located in western Kansas. This is the story of a handful of men and women who survived the terrible holocaust and found the courage to do whatever it took to stay alive while still maintaining some sort of civilized order. Secluded and sometimes completely cut off from the outside world. In their underground missile complex, they are put to the ultimate test of surviving against all odds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Would like more and less 5 Oct. 2013
By Andrew
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Needs more emotion and less detail.

That the book is set in 1976 but written in 2013 is disorienting. Of course it needs to be set in the cold war as global nuclear destruction is less of a threat now, but the reason for 1976 remains a mystery. As we now know how close we have come to nuclear conflict, anchoring the story in the real events of the 1980's might have been more convincing.

I would have liked more exploration of the background to the war, we never find out how it started or why. A lot of detailed exposition of the workings of a missile complex but little on the human dimension. That the world has ended in a nuclear and bacteriological holocaust is treated in a matter of fact way. Survivor guilt is left unexplored as is the immense emotional impact of the destruction. I would have liked to have learned more about the feelings of the missile crews who launched their missiles and contributed to the global destruction.

Much of the storytelling is humdrum and you expect developments that never arrive. We find out little about the survivors personal stories.

Overall a story told from one perspective that is at times tedious in detail and leaves many questions unanswered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 8 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You can tell the author is ex services, he certainly knows his stuff. This book is an enjoyable enough read for fans of the genre - end of the world/survivalist. However there is not a great deal of characterisation in the book. The characters seem to lack much emotion, they seem to deal with the loss of the vast majority of the friends without much in the way of a reaction. So not bad for the price, but not exactly a classic

I really enjoyed this book
The author certainly knows his stuff.
But I think if we get nuked I will stand in front of the missile.
Probably better not to survive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good despite itself! 26 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The spulling and grandma in this book leave much to be desired but despite that I found it to be an absorbing read. Maybe a bit simplistic in the combat and emotional areas and some of the 'searching for supplies' expeditions could have been removed without harming the overall story. Never-the-less something about the unfolding tale kept me hooked and I look forward to the next book with interest.
