Zombies for Cold War / WW2 alt history geeks
Interesting take on a zombie outbreak from the perspective of soviet spec ops in the late eighties.
A lot of military focused books, especially the spec ops vs. zombies style I’ve read, wind up being so heavily focused on the tactical stuff that the main characters wind up being completely bland and uninteresting. This book does not make that mistake. There’s no shortage of tactics and details on weapons and combat, but the characters also grapple with who they are, what they’ve become, and what they’re willing to do. It makes for a much more compelling story than a lot of the blank-slate-main-character books in these genres.
