A land ravaged by war without end.
Cities gutted by weapons of mass destruction.
Countries laid waste by biological warfare.
Governments ruined by greed, violence, and corruption.
This is a world in the throes of economic decay and at the mercy of terrorists.
This is Asia. This is Europe. This is America. This is Final Blackout.
Across this devastated, post-apocalyptic landscape marches one extraordinary soldier and his band of brothers. He is the Lieutenant, a hardened military strategist and a charismatic leader of men. The narrow-minded high command may have relieved the Lieutenant of duty, but not of his honor—and his crack unit of warriors remains fiercely loyal to him.
Now, in a time of deception, desperation, and betrayal, they are headed into the ultimate battle against the ultimate enemy—their own treacherous leaders. But for the Lieutenant, a hero at the crossroads of history, it is time to do what is best for his country and for his men—to undertake one last act of courage and sacrifice ... the Final Blackout.
“As perfect a piece of science fiction as has ever been written.” —Robert A. Heinlein
