War Against the Walking Dead - A Book Review

OK, last year I had the pleasure of reviewing Sean Page’s Official Zombie Handbook, which dealt, in a semi-serious manner, on how to draw up a 90 day survival plan in the wake of a zombie apocalypse.

This new book “War Against the Walking Dead” from the official “Minstry of Zombies” follows on and expands on what was previously covered and gives you detailed knowledge on how to organise survivors and fight back against the living dead.

The book covers everything from how to set up a defended compound against zombies, the effectiveness of various lines of defence and how to plot the movements of various zombie hordes. As well as the effectiveness of various fairearms and hand held weapons.

It also gives you info on how to deal with life following the collapse of civilisation and how to go about rebuilding society. Showing you how to round up and organise survivors and giving you a handy check list of the sort of individuals you DON’T want in your group.

Basically there’s everything in here from military strategies against the dead to first contact protocols with other survivors.

As with the previous book, the info is handled in a matter of fact style, but at the same time you can tell that the authors tongue is firmly embedded in his cheek when he wrote this.

The book really is a must for all zombie movie fans, which makes reference to the various films of Romero and Fulci, and various post apocalyptic films like the Mad Max movies.

So if you want to know what to do after the dead have finally taken over and fancy a bit of light reading this Halloween, or you want to drop a few subtle hints to your loved one about what you’d like for Xmas, then “War Against the Walking Dead” is out in bookshops now
