World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
English, pdf, e-pub, mobi
The 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

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, aren’t we
risking the kind of personal detachment from history that may, heaven
forbid, lead us one day to repeat it? And in the end, isn’t the human
factor the only true difference between us and the enemy we now refer to
as ‘the living dead’?”
