The United States of America is falling before the armies of the dead. Leading the sole survivors of the US Army's 10th Mountain Division out of the overrun city of New York, Captain Phil Hastings heads for the safety of Fort Indiantown Gap, a National Guard training facility deep in the woodlands of Pennsylvania.
Joining with other remnants of the military, government, and civilian communities, Hastings and his men must try to keep the tsunami of corpses from taking over the world and plan the resurrection of the nation.
But first, they have to outlast the ravages of the dead...and the living.

Long Drawn Out Battles

Decent story that isn't too original with battles that drag out a bit too much.

Unimpressed

The audible narrator is excellent! But that's about where it all stops. We follow a small group of survivors through a story that goes nowhere. At first it seems like the story is off to a good start. The first half is interesting and you get the feel is really going to be good. But then it goes into tangents and unnecessary stereotypes that make finishing the novel a struggle and you wonder why these first world problems are brought to the forefront when it doesn't matter in the face of an apocalypse. On top of that there are long strings of military jargon that makes for dull filler writing. I don't need to know EVERY detail about EVERY thought and EVERY action and EVERY conversation leading to that action. It makes for several long drawn out chapters where nothing is actually happening. So I found myself fast forwarding more and more through parts to where the story became a story again. There's no explanation to the massive zombie hoards and why they're literally "millions" marching toward the base 100 miles away. Big massive herds and groups come at the survivors base in waves but with little rhyme or reason as to why the zombies would focus on attaching it and not wander elsewhere. Why is this tiny spec on a map the target of every zombie in the county? It makes no sense. I keep hoping the story gets better but I'm becoming less impressed to the point I'm searching for something else to read/listen to. I don't think I'm going to finish this one.
