Book Review of -- Allied Zombies for Peace by Craig Nybo
My overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
Zombies vs. the KKK in the darkest hour in undead civil rights history. Allied Zombies for Peace covers the violent 42-minute time period that took place on November 11th, 1968, known as the Veterans Day Parade Massacre. This report outlines, according to eyewitnesses, the events that mark that day as a black stain on undead civil rights history.
Violence explodes when a shot is fired during the 1968 Veterans Day Parade in Columbus, Ohio. Not knowing who pulled the trigger, rivaling factions, The Allied Zombies for Peace and The Ku Klux Klan, turn on each other in a vicious flurry of urban combat. Other groups join the fight, including the Vietnam War veterans, a peace-loving group of hippies who call themselves the New Revolutionaries for Peace and Love, and veterans of World War I."

The review --
Zombies, Veterans, and Hippies, O MY! Mr. Nybo does an EXCELLENT job in showing and not telling. The scenes really came to life. He is AWESOME at characterizing the different voices! The character descriptions help you (at least did for me) pulling for each seperate combatant team. Loved listening to it so much that when I couldn't listen, I had to get a kindle copy so the fun could keep going until sleep came my way! I was given an audible copy in exchange for an honest review. Rioting in the street! O, and don't forget the coppers!
