NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTUREThe Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity Max Brooks driven by the urgency of preserving the acid etched first hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet He recorded the testimony of men women and sometimes children who came face to face with the living or at least the undead hell of that dreadful time World War Z is the result Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance that gripped human society through the plague years Ranging from the now infamous village of New Dachang in the United Federation of China where the epidemiological trail began with the twelve year old Patient Zero to the unnamed northern forests where untold numbers sought a terrible and temporary refuge in the cold to the United States of Southern Africa where the Redeker Plan provided hope for humanity at an unspeakable price to the west of the Rockies redoubt where the North American tide finally started to turn this invaluable chronicle reflects the full scope and duration of the Zombie War Most of all the book captures with haunting immediacy the human dimension of this epochal event Facing the often raw and vivid nature of these personal accounts requires a degree of courage on the part of the reader but the effort is invaluable because as Mr Brooks says in his introduction By excluding the human factor arent we risking the kind of personal detachment from history that may heaven forbid lead us one day to repeat it And in the end isnt the human factor the only true difference between us and the enemy we now refer to as the living dead Note Some of the numerical and factual material contained in this edition was previously published under the auspices of the United Nations Postwar Commission Eyewitness reports from the first truly global warI found Patient Zero behind the locked door of an abandoned apartment across town His wrists and feet were bound with plastic packing twine Although hed rubbed off the skin around his bonds there was no blood There was also no blood on his other wounds He was writhing like an animal a gag muffled his growls At first the villagers tried to hold me back They warned me not to touch him that he was cursed I shrugged them off and reached for my mask and gloves The boys skin was cold and gray I could find neither his heartbeat nor his pulse Dr Kwang Jingshu Greater Chongqing United Federation of ChinaShock and Awe Perfect name But what if the enemy cant be shocked and awed Not just wont but biologically cant Thats what happened that day outside New York City thats the failure that almost lost us the whole damn war The fact that we couldnt shock and awe Zack boomeranged right back in our faces and actually allowed Zack to shock and awe us Theyre not afraid No matter what we do no matter how many we kill they will never ever be afraid Todd Wainio former U S Army infantryman and veteran of the Battle of YonkersTwo hundred million zombies Who can even visualize that type of number let alone combat it For the first time in history we faced an enemy that was actively waging total war They had no limits of endurance They would never negotiate never surrender They would fight until the very end because unlike us every single one of them every second of every day was devoted to consuming all life on Earth General Travis DAmbrosia Supreme Allied Commander EuropeFrom the Hardcover edition
