Overview

Zombie expert Scott Kenemore (The Zen of Zombie) unearths a collection of top-secret lost documents from WWII (originally intercepted by the U.S. Signal Corps in 1941 and presented to Franklin Roosevelt in a confidential memorandum), describing efforts of the Nazi Sicherheitsdienst (or SD) to harness and weaponize Haitian Voodoo and zombie-creating technologies for military purposes. For the first time, here is the thrilling, humorous, and satisfyingly-gory story of an evil empire’s foolhardy attempt to harness an ancient and unspeakable monster: the zombie!

While the Nazis initially dream of creating an army of bloodthirsty, automaton super-zombies to march across Europe, they soon learn that the walking dead are not as obedient and malleable as they’ve been led to believe. In contrast, these Nazi agents quickly find that the walking dead of the Haitian backwoods are closer to brain-eating, flesh-rending dynamos that don’t respect a nicely pressed SS uniform, and instead just go for the jugular. Faced with Voodoo spells, dangerous flora and fauna, and their own naive assumptions about the dark forces with which they’re tangling, these Nazi SD agents learn the hard way that nobody bosses around a zombie.

Kenemore—with nearly 100,000 copies of zombie classics in print—does it again.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It's the dawn of World War II, and the Third Reich has dispatched three spies to Haiti to unravel the mysteries of voodoo. The evil empire plots to use an army of bloodthirsty walking dead to conquer the world but soon discovers that zombies are not as acquiescent as they've been led to believe. The action takes place, aptly, in Port-au-Prince amid a dark atmosphere reminiscent of the 1932 Bela Lugosi horror film White Zombie. The inept Nazi spies are by turns heinous and humorous as they attempt to learn the secrets of raising the dead. Kenemore's latest zombie chronicle is as witty as his earlier books (The Zen of Zombie; Zombie, Ohio). The story, told through a series of top-secret documents unearthed by zombie historian Kenemore, is a refreshingly clever read that hails back to the original source of the zombie legend—voodoo. The book's design, with illustrations by Wallenta, falls somewhere between a graphic novel and a chapter book for adults. Read with a healthy respect for voodoo, a strong stomach, and tongue firmly planted in cheek.
