Shocking scenes of battle...unforgettable soldiers...heartbreaking betrayals.... In this stunning, fast-paced novel, a ruthless future war unfolds in a 21st century nightmare: Los Angeles is a radioactive ruin; Europe lies bleeding; and Israel has been destroyed...with millions slaughtered. A furious America fights to reclaim the devastated Holy Land. The Marines storm ashore; the U.S. Army does battle in a Biblical landscape. Hi-tech weaponry is useless and primitive hatreds flare. Lt. Gen. Gary "Flintlock" Harris and his courageous warriors struggle for America's survival--with ruthless enemies to their front and treachery at their rear. Islamist fanatics, crusading Christians, and unscrupulous politicians open the door to genocide. The War After Armageddon thrusts the reader into a terrifying future in which all that remains is the horror of war--and the inspiration of individual heroism. A master at bringing to life "the eternal soldier," Ralph Peters tells a riveting tale that honors those Americans who fight and sacrifice all for a dream of freedom.… (mais)

Interesting scenario in novel form about a "post-cold-war" massive conflict; a potential future (although maybe not the most likely). Essentially, Islamist terrorism going nuclear, Europe going fascist, and the US split between religious expeditionary warfare and those maintaining civic nationalist institutions like the Army and USMC. In some areas the book is a bit heavy-handed, but it's at least interesting.

Any military scenario where the US military isn't far-and-away more powerful than any adversary requires a lot of leaps fancy, and I don't know if "US becomes a theocracy" is anywhere near the most plausible, but from that assumption, it's a decent scenario and story after that. ( )

This book is certainly action packed and interesting, it's set in a future where Christianity and Islam are at each others throats. After numerous attacks by Islamic terrorists against the west, an American fundamentalist evangelist goes the same route of the Islamic fundamentalists and starts preaching that the only way for Christianity to survive is to attack Islam and destroy it, essentially.

The National Guard is then rebranded as the Military Order of the Brothers in Christ (MOBIC), members are drawn from all the other services, and all the best equipment is also stripped from the other services. A Holy War is then embarked upon with MOBIC leading a bloody charge to try and take Jerusalem.

The narrative is set as a journal from someone who lived through the war and is now clearing the conscience in an attempt to clear up the current regimes propaganda about the US Army General who led the Army & Marine detachment within the aforementioned war who is know branded a traitor.

I found it to be a really good tale, the idea of such a thing occurring is certainly plausible with how certain public figures attempt to rally their followers to certain points of view. The sequences within the story were set out in such a manner to be both action filled and realistic, and the tension between the regular army and MOBIC was well written. ( )

The military terminology almost prevented me from reading this one, then I found the glossary which helped a lot. This book shows what a slippery slope things can be when religious fanatics are involved whether the religion is Muslim or Christian. ( )

This "novel" describes a world future that pits radical Islam v Christianity. It reads like a war game. Themes include contemporary issues dealing with religious fanaticism, nuclear proliferation, and dependence on advancements in technology for warfare. The characters range from very tactical Marines to the Army Corps commanders. I found them intriguing and the twists of plot involving them were exciting--right through the epilogue. The book was very thought provoking; those who say it couldn't happen have their head in the sand or somewhere else where it's dark. ( )
