    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    For 2,000 years mankind had suffered a return to the Dark Ages. If Ormson was defeated it might never progress.

But Michael Ormson - called the Ice Prophet by some - had not brought relief to the common people, and his officers were making powerful enemies. Soon Ormson would be fighting for his life - and the outcome would decide whether mankind would forever be prisoner to the forces that had condemned Galileo millennia before.
