Valor In The Ashes by William W. Johnstone
"I've been at war for years. And we will continue to fight until the scum and the warlords and the human filth and those who prey on the weak are gone from the face of this land that we still call America."
Back From The Brink
A decade has passed since the nuclear nightmare of the Great War brought America to the brink of destruction. Out of the smoldering ashes, Ben Raines has emerged to build a new society in this once proud land. But in this hellish new world there is evil lurking, evil that will stop at nothing to destroy the dream of a new America.
Leaving a small rear-guard detachment at their home base in Louisiana, Ben Raines and his rebel army begin an overload expedition to New York City--the armed Hell on Earth of the cannibalistic mutants known as the Night People. For Raines and his rebels, it means clearing skyscrapers floor by floor and stalking an endless labyrinth of underground tunnels--a perilous search-and-destroy mission that will decide the fate of freedom's cause.
