The outrageously inventive follow-up to By the Blood of Heroes—Inglourious Basterds meets Dawn of the Dead in this steampunk alternate history World War I zombie novel.
At the close of 1917, the Germans introduced a new type of gas, T-Leiche—“corpse gas”—a revolutionary weapon that changed the war. Instead of killing the living, T-Leiche resurrected the bodies of the dead.
Though they survived the killing fields of France, the danger has only just begun for veteran Captain Michael "Madman" Burke and company. They've just been assigned a new mission: rescue Princess Veronica, the sole surviving member of the British royal family. But Kaiser Manfred Von Richthofen, the undead Red Baron and new leader of Germany, is determined to find Veronica as well.
In the devastated, zombie-infested city of London, Burke and his men will face off in an unholy battle with their most formidable opponent yet: a team led by none other than his infected former right-hand man, Sergeant Moore. If they don't succeed, all of Britain will fall into undead Central hands.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
On Her Majesty’s Behalf: The Great Undead War Book II is the 2nd in Joseph Nassise series of World War II set in a Steampunk, Zombie World. Burke and his team have just recently returned from saving Jack Freeman, the top American ace who was being held by the Germans. On a mission to England which has been gassed by the Germans, they receive word that the royal family is still alive. Burke and his team get sent to London to rescue the royal family. They are only a little bit ahead of a German invasion team that has also gone to get the royal family. When Burke’s team arrives they find only one surviving member. The action is breathlessly fast as Burke’s team stays just one step ahead of the Germans. This is a great follow-up to the first in the series. Waiting for the third, especially in light of the ending of this story is going to be very difficult. This story is great for those who like stories about warriors, war strategy, zombies, science, and non-stop action. I recommend for youth as well as adults.
Once again the author delivers. A fast paced adventure that goes at breakneck speed. Major Burke is back and this time he has to rescue the Queen of England from Zombie super soldiers. Fast read that really delivers. A great series. Highly recommend!
