Why read it?

1 author picked Warday as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

As much as I enjoy the imagery and metaphors associated with large-scale devastation, I also like to imagine how we mere mortals could survive what we have caused. This author takes the time to depict a very humane post-apocalyptic struggle in ways that I still admire. Once you get past the pain and suffering, there’s a lot of hope and optimism on these pages.

From Justin's list on the environmental impacts of war.
