Patrick | 3 comments I got this book second hand in a set that did contain the book "Warday". I thought they were all tied together, but reading Amazon and other information it appears it was not a true sequal. However, I thought I remember on the cover of the book something to do with the being a sequal to "warday" or based on "warday novel.
Anyway, here is what i remember the novel to be about:
It is set a few years after "Warday" and the USSR has invaded the United States. The charater in the storey describes where he was on war day, and has a twin brother and they married twin sisters. Evently they brothers meet up and determine each other was having an affair with the others wife. The Main character continues to fight the Russians in gurilla tactics and eventually becomes quite the soldier.
I hope someone can help me out!
Thanks!


Cheryl is busier irl atm. (cherylllr) Help me clarify: Warday - is this the book you're relating the mystery book to? And have you looked at all the author's books? Whitley Strieber

Maybe this? Nature's End

From wikipedia: "During the book tour surrounding the release of Warday, both Strieber and Kunetka hinted that they were planning a sequel in which the two would venture overseas and reveal how Western Europe, Africa, China, Japan, and the remnants of the Soviet Union fared ten years after the limited exchange.[1] However, both writers instead released Nature's End, and then ceased writing together for reasons neither have explained."

Shanna_redwind | 858 comments Is this the book you were thinking of? Nature's End by James W. Kunetka Nature's End

I thought of it because I remember the covers looking the same. Warday by Whitley Strieber

Dawn | 221 comments nature's end has nothing about nuclear war and/or russians

Shanna_redwind | 858 comments Sorry for the extra post about Nature's end. I had the message up and I didn't think to refresh it before I posted.

Patrick, don't give up hope. Just occassionally (maybe every 4-6 weeks or so) bump it so that people see it and keep it in their minds.

Could you be thinking of Dean Ing's Ted Quantrill series, which took General Sir John Hackett's "The Third World War: August 1985" as its starting point?
