In a small North Carolina town, one man struggles to save his family after America loses a war that will send it back to the Dark Ages.

Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States, literally within one second.

In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe, and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future and our end.

This book really makes you start to think about how prepared you would be if a large disaster hit and help didn't come right away.

Although a story and topic to think about I must admit that I found at times I had troubles with the writing and the "american" style of the way the characters reacted in the story.

Unrealistic and has a serious conservative slant to it. I couldn't get past the lack of realism though.
