  • "The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of those who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result."

Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years. Ranging from the now infamous village of New Dachang in the United Federation of China, where the epidemiological trail began with the twelve-year-old Patient Zero, to the unnamed northern forests where untold numbers sought a terrible and temporary refuge in the cold, to the United States of Southern Africa, where the Redeker Plan provided hope for humanity at an unspeakable price, to the west-of-the-Rockies redoubt where the North American tide finally started to turn, this invaluable chronicle reflects the full scope and duration of the Zombie War."

Most of all, the book captures with haunting immediacy the human dimension of this epochal event. Facing the often raw and vivid nature of these personal accounts requires a degree of courage on the part of the reader, but the effort is invaluable because, as Mr. Brooks says in his introduction, "By excluding the human factor, aren't we risking the kind of personal detachment from history that may, heaven forbid, lead us one day to repeat it' And in the end, isn't the human factor the only true difference between us and the enemy we now refer to as 'the living dead''" Note: Some of the numerical and factual material contained in this edition was previously published under the auspices of the United Nations Postwar Commission."@en
  • "From the author of the bestselling, "The Zombie survival guide", "World War Z" is for fans of Zombie literature and film; for lovers of apocalyptic what-if novels; for those obsessed with the state of paranoia in which we all live -- it's a new standard in apocalyptic fiction. This brilliant novel imagines a Studs Terkel-like character traveling the world to access the impact of a war between humans and zombies. Though humans have survived "World War Z", many are still haunted by those terrible years. Max Brooks sets out to reveal the people's stories, to tell the true history of what happened. The result is a stunning and all-too believable oral history of a future conflict."@en
