Description

The outrageously inventive follow-up to By the Blood of Heroes--Inglourious Basterds meets Dawn of the Dead in this steampunk alternate history World War I zombie novel.

At the close of 1917, the Germans introduced a new type of gas, T-Leiche--"corpse gas"--a revolutionary weapon that changed the war. Instead of killing the living, T-Leiche resurrected the bodies of the dead.

Though they survived the killing fields of France, the danger has only just begun for veteran Captain Michael "Madman" Burke and company. They've just been assigned a new mission: rescue Princess Veronica, the sole surviving member of the British royal family. But Kaiser Manfred Von Richthofen, the undead Red Baron and new leader of Germany, is determined to find Veronica as well.

In the devastated, zombie-infested city of London, Burke and his men will face off in an unholy battle with their most formidable opponent yet: a team led by none other than his infected former right-hand man, Sergeant Moore. If they don't succeed, all of Britain will fall into undead Central hands.

Back cover copy

After a surprise attack on London and New York, the Germans introduced a new type of gas--corpse gas--a revolutionary weapon that resurrected the bodies of the dead.

For those who survived the killing fields of France, the danger has only just begun. Veteran Major Michael "Madman" Burke and his company have just been assigned a daring new mission by the president himself: rescue the members of the British royal family. But Manfred von Richthofen, the undead Red Baron and newly self-appointed leader of Germany, is also determined to find the family.

In the devastated, zombie-infested city of London, Burke and his men will face off in an unholy battle with their most formidable opponent yet: a team of infected super soldiers--shredders--who have greater speed and strength than their shambler predecessors. If they don't succeed, all of Britain will fall into undead enemy hands.

Review quote

"I would argue Joseph Nassise is the most important thing to happen to zombies since Max Brooks, and that's no hyperbole. He's really that good."--Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesh Easters
