Bill Forstchen on Fox News

This is one of my favorite guys to listen to on the radio. He had a show on AM-1350 out of Asheville called "The History Guy" and every Friday was a feast of knowledge...

He has a new book out called "One Second After" that I highly reccomend for you to get and read. It is a novel about the struggle of a community to survive in the wake of a devastating EMP attack.

New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real...a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages...A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies.

Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end.

Here are some websites for you to check out that will help you prepare for an EMP or other disaster:
