This book opened my eyes and presented me with an inside look at the conservative camp. While I’m reading this part of the story, I kept wondering why the character didn’t get up to the nursing home days before to retrieve his father in law and to offer assistance to the staff.
The main character is a pompous, self-appointed hero who cannot refrain himself from describing the tightness of various women’s blouses.

Deep Survival — http: They last forstchem I would even think of trying would be to raid and Amish farm in Mississippi …. There were several references to inappropriate or awkward oggling of women which made the story feel icky.
Lots of police present, yet people rioted, looted, etc. Forstchen asks some difficult questions and requires the reader to take a serious look at who we are. If this EMP ever happens, I am toast.
Survival and Emergency Preparedness are much more a sdcond than a list of items.
