Press Release - What So Proudly We Hailed by James Howard

I haven't read this one yet, but have requested a review copy.

Charleston, SC - November 15, 2010 - Imagine what would happen if eighty percent of the United States were without power for three or four months. All banking and commercial transfers locked up; funds inaccessible. Wholesale and retail distribution shut down; no computers to manage sales. Passenger and freight lines grind to a halt; no electricity for the fuel pumps. No cell phone or landline service; systems down indefinitely. And the worst aspect of all; a total breakdown of law and order.

This is the setting of What So Proudly We Hailed. The unthinkable has happened; a limited nuclear missile strike has destroyed the power grid beyond any immediate repair. The protagonist, Jason Ribault, sensing the societal breakdown to come, flees with his family in an old cabin cruiser to wait out the worst of the chaos behind the deserted barrier islands of the South Carolina coast. There they listen to unfolding events on a short-wave radio, not the least of which concerns a hostile political influence seeking to seize control of a nation struggling to right itself once again. 

Pursued by their own immediate dangers, the family is pushed farther and farther into the desolate salt marshes where they find other families in hiding. Eventually, anxious to unite with a family member in danger, they turn back into the chaos, to see the full extent of what has happened to the America they knew.

Electric with page-turning suspense, What So Proudly We Hailed is an eye-opening book every American must read.

About the author:
James Howard is a veteran of the US Navy's nuclear weapons program. He has also spent twenty years working in heavy industry, including electrical power generation and distribution, and knows much about our nation's power grid. These experiences, combined with his study of Bible prophesy, world history, and Islam, make him uniquely qualified to write this novel.
