Description: When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living - with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of 7 billion animated corpses.
And when civilization fell, one international team of supremely elite special operators was being assembled for a nearly impossible mission, deployed out of the SAS barracks at Hereford. Supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us, now the commandos of Alpha team are humanity's last best hope for survival. Searching through the detritus of fallen Europe, scavenging pharmaceutical labs for clues to a vaccine that might bring humanity back from the brink, now they are tasked with one last desperate operation.
They must cross the Atlantic aboard the world's only remaining supercarrier, insert by air into the very middle of a dead continent, and then fight their way on foot through a city of 3 million ravening dead guys. But these Zulus will not be like any zombies they have ever fought before...
Reviews: "Zombie fiction is full of former soldiers fighting the undead. The genre also has plenty of civilians who turn into fighting machines when faced with possible extermination. But in this book we find one nation whose civilian and military leadership are still relatively intact, and fighting the zombie horde with all of the weapons and warriors of the modern military we witness in today's world. Until I read this novel I hadn't really thought about the lack of zombie fiction in which modern military units have much success, or even maintain unit integrity following their society's collapse. The authors of Arisen: Fortress Britain have combined an incredible knowledge of contemporary military technology and tactics with the zombie apocalypse we all love to read about. I haven't read every zombie novel ever written, but I have read MANY of them, and I found this book to be unique and very entertaining. Also, this book is VERY well written and edited compared with many works being published today. I downloaded this book last night and finished it this afternoon. When this review is submitted I will be downloading the sequel. And I have plenty of books that are awaiting my attention............The Arisen series is good, really good. Buy it now.....support these guys!"
