Martial law can be defined as the military taking control of a city, state or country and running it at their discretion.  The military would impose control on a civilian population when law and order cannot be maintained by the civil authorities.  Martial law scenarios would likely involve a serious restriction, erosion, and or suspension of your Constitutional rights by government decree.

In order to survive martial law the following things should be considered.  You will need to prepare beforehand by becoming as self reliant as possible, avoid traveling to any and all areas under martial law, do not draw attention to yourself or your family during times of martial law, stay informed, and never accept the governments word at face value.  Remember your survival and the survival of your family trumps obeying dictates and mandates.

A constant, armed military presence  and routine patrols by the military will be part of martial law along with strictly enforced curfews and mandatory vehicle checkpoints.  There will be people who masquerade as law enforcement to lure people into traps, attack them, and seize their valuable supplies  Do not fall for this.  You need to be extremely careful who you follow and whom you trust.  Your life may just depend on it.

You can see all 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at  They are really quite interesting to read if I do say so myself and they also make excellent gifts 🙂
