Following a devastating train wreck, a small group of survivors emerge from the wreckage to discover New York City is the target of an attack and millions of bodies line the streets.
Harry Hayward is one of those survivors. He served his country, fought two wars, and in his 80 years on earth could say he had seen it all. Until this day.
Surprised that the group separates, Harry is left alone to care and guide an eight-year-old boy out of the devastation of New York and, he hopes, to safety. But finding safety isn't easy. The destruction extends far beyond New York. A massive strike has commenced on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, and for the first time since the War of 1812, America has been invaded.
Harry and the boy, along with the other survivors, are deep inside occupied territory. As they journey and struggle through the front lines of a war that will rage for decades, they discover just how hard they have to fight for the price of freedom. A freedom they all had taken for granted.
First there was normalcy .. then came war.
Then Came War is the prequel to Wasteland and is part of the America's Demise Series.

Promised Originality, Delivers Drivel
If in the review and description of this narrative some mention of the fact that it is a thinly veiled, and none to well constructed screed in support of blind adherence to the will of a Global-American Superstate those of us capable of independent thought would save our time and money and steer clear of it.
Steady, moderate, and flexible.
Yes. The original premise and details in the first couple chapters are good, innovative, and well delivered until the point in the narrative where it is necessary to engage in detail development and of characters and events.
Looking for detail, realism, and man-on-the-street comprehensibility of narrative? Then sheer off!
