Publisher Bio

“Alas, Babylon.” Those fateful words heralded the end. When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness.

My Observation

It is dated. Written in 1950s but was a good representation of what would happen if nuclear war happened. Only difference is 2 generations later, it would be much worse. These people basically knew what to do. We would not.
