Mabus is a man who clearly has a deep-rooted hatred for the American people and all things American. Over the course of his ill-gotten Presidency, he perfects and executes his insane plan to depopulate the United States. He manages to shackle the military, forcing hundreds of seasoned military leaders out of service for honoring their oath to the country and Constitution over him.
Using everything at his disposal as `the most powerful man in the world', Mabus unleashes chemical, biological, and nuclear devastation on the people and country he had taken an oath to defend. Using alien technology, he wages war on the American people.
The story follows the adventures of groups of survivors as they try to survive in a world torn apart by a mad man. This is as much a Survival guide as it is a rousing Science Fiction adventure story.
