Overview

The War after Armageddon by Ralph Peters

Shocking scenes of battle…unforgettable soldiers…heartbreaking betrayals…. In this stunning, fast-paced novel, a ruthless future war unfolds in a 21st century nightmare: Los Angeles is a radioactive ruin; Europe lies bleeding; and Israel has been destroyed…with millions slaughtered. A furious America fights to reclaim the devastated Holy Land.

The Marines storm ashore; the U.S. Army does battle in a Biblical landscape. Hi-tech weaponry is useless and primitive hatreds flare. Lt. Gen. Gary "Flintlock" Harris and his courageous warriors struggle for America's survival--with ruthless enemies to their front and treachery at their rear. Islamist fanatics, crusading Christians, and unscrupulous politicians open the door to genocide.

The War After Armageddon thrusts the reader into a terrifying future in which all that remains is the horror of war--and the inspiration of individual heroism. A master at bringing to life "the eternal soldier," Ralph Peters tells a riveting tale that honors those Americans who fight and sacrifice all for a dream of freedom.

This book was fantastic. It takes a 100 pages or so to really develop the plot and get in tune with the main characters. But once completed the story hits you like a ton of bricks. Without giving a lot away, the story centers around religious fanaticism and how fighting a war in the name of God, Allah, etc. can very easily change the world we live in forever. Two of the worlds largest religions, Christianity and Islam are in an all our war after nuclear bombs are detonated in two major US cities. High ranking officials with significant influence are determined to purge their adversaries religion and their people from the world forever. The collapse of the United States Military and it's Constitution are at stake, as US politician's now look to God for advise on how to win the war and run the country. The reality of the concepts presented in this book are scary to say the least. There are scenes that upset me so much I found myself yelling at the pages, saying, "no, please do not let this happen to my country and its military." Given the United States current enemies the concepts the authors present are not as far fetched as we may think. This is a book that will stay with the reader well after the last page is finished.

Reading Ralph Peters' dark new novel, The War After Armageddon, is, in a way, much like driving by a grisly traffic accident - the view is horrific, but you just can't look away. Peters' novel is, indeed, compellingly horrific, the plot driven along by a realism that only a writer with this author's background, experience and vision can achieve and pass along to the reader in a dramatic narrative. Peters, today's most insightful strategist when observing in print or in his many TV appearances as guest commentator what is really taking place in the dangerous world around us, has the rare ability to think through and vividly imagine the second-, third-, and even fourth-order effects of policy decisions today's world leaders are making. The hellish world vision that Peters' describes in The War After Armageddon may on the surface seem far-fetched; yet, he's skillfully applied his superb insight as a strategist, experienced intelligence officer, and veteran world traveler to show us what might happen in a world where mankind's oldest motivators - faith and blood - have succeeded in trumping reason and good will.

A frightening look at what could happen if the Christian right took over the country, and the over reliance the US military places on high technology.

I have always liked books by Ralph Peters. I was looking forward to this book to be on the same level as Harold Coyle or Tom Clancy. A book where you stay up late at night reading because you had to know what was going to happen next. Instead I thought it was a difficult read. I didn't care what would happen next and actually had to force myself to read it. I did not like the story at all and it had nothing to do with the political or religious beliefs portrayed. Throughout the story I kept expecting more. The story would hint at something interesting and you were looking forward to further explaination and you never heard about it again.

I am a born-again Christian and found this book to be both depressing and frightening. Nevertheless, Christians should read this book and remember that God says "Vengeance is Mine". Leave the vengeance to God alone and not to any person who claims to act on His behalf. Instead - work to love your neighbor as instructed.
