About this title


The Cannons of Armageddon is a chilling illustration (64 pages non-fiction, 222 pages fiction) of a very plausable nuclear terrorist attack by al Qaeda and Iran against an America whose government, populaton and electronic infrastructure is currently so unprepared and vunerable that modern technological civilization is destroyed in most of our country. As was the case in the use of large airplanes loaded with thousands of gallons of aviation fuel as potential WMD prior the 911 attacks, few people realize how easily crude Hiroshima size atomic bombs (uranuim "gun assembly" devices) could be built and what an existential threat to America terrorists represent once they posses weapons grade nuclear material for the small explosive cores of these devices. The non-fiction chapters form the scientific, geo-political and theological basis for a frightening plot: In an attack later in this decade America suffers damages of biblical proportions and suddenly people find themselves in a world turned upside down with a government helpless to return the country to a semblance of civilization. When no city is safe from sudden nuclear destruction & critical infrastructure on which our high tech civilization depends ceases to exist, chaos and a desperate struggle to survive ensues as millions are without the last 100 years of technical progress, including a family fighting to survive the winter in a New England cut off from the outside world and plunged into a mid-evil darkness.

About the Author:

Very pertinent to one of the main themes of this book (America's survival is criticaly dependent on the continued functioning of our highly vunerable electronic networks) the author is an expert on wide area nationwide communications networks and worked for years as a senior IT analyst, engineer & manager of nationwide voice and data networks used by large corporations. While conducting research into potential threats posed by terrorists to the infrastructure of his employer, Tyco International, in the wake of the September 11 attacks, Mr. Monroe came across a little known but potentially catastrophic phenomena called electro magnetic pulse (by a nuclear detonation) or EMP. Awareness of the great vulnerability of our high tech society to such ignored threats re-awoke another great interest in the author to the potential of nuclear warfare stemming from his uncle's (Llewellyn Thompson) key role in the formulation of President Johnson's nuclear policy with the Soviet Union as ambassador to the USSR and previously as ambassador-at-large and special adviser (to President Kennedy) - during the Cuban Missile Crisis. In additon to his technical background, the author holds a degree from the University of Massachusetts in Political Science and has traveled to the Middle East, reading extensively about Iran & radical Islamic movement
