Description

Months before publication, William R. Forstchen's "One Second After" was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read. This thrilling follow-up to that smash hit begins one year after "One Second After" ends, two years since nuclear weapons were detonated above the United States and brought America to its knees. After months of suffering starvation, war, and countless deaths, the survivors of Black Mountain, North Carolina, are beginning to recover technology and supplies they had once taken for granted. When a federal administrator arrives in a nearby city, they dare to hope that a new national government is finally emerging.

Progress is halted when the young men and women in the community are drafted into the Army of National Recovery. Town administrator John Matherson and the people of Black Mountain protest vehemently. But the New Regime is already tyrannizing one nearby community, and it seems that Matherson's friends and neighbors will be next.
