The Last Centurion
John RingoA MILITARY THRILLER SET IN AN ALL-TOO PLAUSIBLE TOMORROW
In the second decade of the twenty-first century the world is struck by two catastrophes: a new mini-ice age and, nearly simultaneously, a plague to dwarf any in recorded history.
Rising out of the disaster is the character know to history as 'Bandid Six,' an American Army officer caught up in the struggle to rebuild the world and to prevent the fall of his homeland - despite the best efforts of politicians both elected and military.
The Last Centurion is a memoir of one possible future, a world that is a darkling mirror of our own. Written "blog-style" it pulls no punches in its descriptions of junk science, bad strategy and organic farming, not to mention all three at once.
"I am your Centurion. This America shall not fall!"
