Publisher's Summary

America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.
As hordes of refugees and looters pour out of the cities, a small group of friends living in the Midwest desperately try to make their way to a safe-haven ranch in northern Idaho. The journey requires all their skill and training since communication, commerce, transportation and law enforcement have all disappeared. Once at the ranch, the group fends off vicious attacks from outsiders and then looks to join other groups that are trying to restore true Constitutional law to the country.
Patriots is a thrilling narrative depicting fictional characters using authentic survivalist techniques to endure the collapse of American civilization. Listening to this compelling, fast-paced novel could one day mean the difference between life and death.

Thought provoking for preppers

This book does not focus on getting to know characters trying to survive. It is all about the technical aspects of items needed in an economic collapse and warfare tatics. If you are making a prepper list then this book is for you. If you are looking for a book to draw you into a story then you might want to keep looking.

Good Info, poor story

Any additional comments?

While I am somewhat like minded with some of the themes of the book, I think the info in the book would have been just as well printed as lists and instructions. The story line was very disjointed (in my opinion) and the characters were not very well developed. Although I am much a supporter of "bearing arms", the ENDLESS writing on guns, parts, ammo in every situation was just too much. If I had wanted a gun manual, I would have purchased one. As some reviewers have noted, this book really seems like an instruction manual with some people thrown in so it can be sold as a novel. I do applaud the author for all the information he is trying to share, but a prepper manual would have been cheaper, faster, and more use.
