But Warday destroyed much of civilization.Whitley Strieber and James Kunetka, old friends and writers, take a dangerous odyssey across the former United States, sometimes hopeful that a new, peaceful world can be built over the old, sometimes despairing over the immense losses and embittered people they meet.In an eerie blend of fact and imagination, Strieber (author of The Wolfen and The Hunger) and Kunetka (author of City of Fire: Los Alamos and The Atomic Age, 1943-1945 and Oppenheimer: The Years of Risk) cut through the doublespeak of military bureaucracy and the rhetoric of the 1980s peace movement to portray America after Warday.
