One of the best survival genre fiction books I’ve come across in some time is Archer Garrett’s book Western Front.  The story is exciting, well written and leaves you wanting to know what happens next.  It is a hard book to put down.  The descriptions and characters are well portrayed and I for one will be reading many more of Archer Garrett’s books. The following is a brief synopsis of his book from

Darkness has descended upon the world; the fabric of society has been torn asunder, sovereign nations collapse under their own burdens, once stable governments are ushered into revolution and allies of old are thrust into war. The tentacles of darkness have inevitably traveled across the Atlantic and are now tightening their grip on the American republic.

Now, faced with a collapsing economy, a failing currency and a society that is swiftly casting its humanity aside, the United States stands at the precipice of a bedlam and malevolence not witnessed since the fall of Rome.

The story follows several characters who strive to navigate the chaos, including:

Jake, his wife and brother are forced to flee the maelstrom of violence as it spills from the distant cities and into their small town enclave.

A Texas State Guardsmen deep behind enemy lines on South Padre Island, stands with his compatriots against a wave of unspeakable atrocities committed by a ruthless cartel alliance committed to seizing the spoils of the American southwest.

An outlaw and his Catahoula cur companion, learn to survive and even thrive in their river swamp domain as they seek a redoubt from the troubles that plague the world around them.

Meanwhile, a radical revolutionary intent on plunging the wounded nation into revolution, stokes the flames of hatred and destruction.

This version contains the complete Novel (Parts 1-3).

Archer Garrett’s book Western Front can be ordered from the following link.

  1. Ah! He’s talking about the current economic crisis! He’s doing a wonderful job of it 😀 I trust by purchasing this book I would learn the necessary skills to survive too!!

    • Not the current crisis, but a fictionalized collapse that starts off not that dissimilar from our own, but becomes much worse. I hope the story stays nestled warmly in the realm of fiction.

      The book focuses much more on story than skills, though the tactics and choices some of the characters make could be helpful.
