Introduction

(

New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real...a story in whichoneman strugglestosavehis family and his small North Carolina townafter America loses a war, in one second, a warthat will send America back to theDark Ages...A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). A weapon that mayalready 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 couldshatter 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.
