>World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (2006) is an apocalyptic horror novel by Max Brooks. The novel is a collection of individual accounts narrated by an agent of the United Nations Postwar Commission, following the devastating global conflict against the zombie plague. Other passages record a decade-long desperate struggle, as experienced by people of various nationalities. The personal accounts also describe the resulting social, political, religious, and environmental changes.
As well as complete and utter ignorance of just about anything related to military tactics or equipment.
>World War Z is a follow-up to Brooks' "survival manual" The Zombie Survival Guide (2003), but its tone is much more serious.
Filled with all sorts of idiotic fuddlore which also leaks into this book.
>Brooks used World War Z to comment on government ineptitude and American isolationism, while also examining survivalism and uncertainty.
As well helping market stupid accessories to gullible people by painting them green and putting biohazard symbols on them. It only speaks to the sad state of many survivalist types that the Zombie Hunters forums aren't the most cringeworthy survivalist community.
Now let's get cracking on the real meat here: the book itself.

Alright you fuckers, I have to share this with you. It's a story my friend told me and I'm tactically shit myself because I know for a fact he does not go on 4chan, I've tried to get him to, let alone /k/.
He just got back from Basic so we were drinking to celebrate and talking like we used to when we were younger. After a while I start asking him about paranormal shit. Idk why, maybe I was just in the mood from movies or some shit. So he opens up and tells me a story he has never told me before and it made my spine crawl. It reminded me of the ones I've heard on here.
To preface, my friend is a pretty skeptical guy and very level headed. He likes fiction like Stephen King and shit but I don't think he could have made it up from listening. I'm trying to get him to type it out and send it to me because he would be much better at telling it to me but he just got home so he's probably busy getting it in with the fiancee. Until then I'll do my best to summarize
>Be my friend. About 10 years old
>He lived in rural California. Grew up on an orchard
>There's nothing but fields of dead grass and oak trees for miles outside of that
>One day a couple of his cousins come to spend the weekend
>They want to go explore and play out in the wilds like all kids did when deprived of vidyagames and television
>He acts as their guide and they have fun times innafields
>One of his cousins is our age and cute as all fuck (my opinion)
>She says to him they should camp for the night out there under this one oak
>Related or not, a cute girl can make you do dumb things so he agrees
>His family had always told him not to go outside the fence at night. Especially not without their dogs
>At the time he thought it was because they were overprotective of him
>He was too big for coyotes to take on unless in a big group and nobody had seen a wolf or venomous snake around there in decades
>His other cousins are too young to do that and they would probably tell on them

Good evening /k/,
It seems /thg/ guy is busy this week, so in order to quell the inner turmoil of the tanks aficionados around here, I humbly propose this thread for the general discussion of tanks, AFVs tracked and wheeled vehicles etc.
I will not do a write-up on any vehicle, that's his thing and he's much more knowledgeable than me in any case. I'll post a couple pics to launch the thread and that's it.
Keep it civil, cite sources and generally behave in a /thg/-esque way.
