Editorial Reviews

“A thrilling—and terrifying—tale of what could be our next 9/11!” W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV
“Bill Forstchen is highly respected in the military history community because he is the only one working in the field who understands the operational aspects of war, as well as the tactical and the policy/strategic levels.” Dr. Dennis Showalter, former president of the Society for Military History, author of Tannenberg: Clash of Empires

A sad truth of what could come

I never write reviews but this is such a shocking reality I had to. Sadly this could be a reality and this story needs to heard. I read One Second After and this could happen.

Suspenseful and important -- and the reader, Bronson Pinchot, is superb.

Dude, Where’s My Reputation?

This was a joke, right? William R. Forstchen usually writes fully-developed and inspiring main characters, employs white-hot relevant plots, and uses science and facts that glide seamlessly along awesome narration. His themes fully resonate and aren’t based on political talking points. Not with Day of Wrath. Who told Forstchen that taking the most horrific and depressing news item of the day, namely terrorism by ISIS (a radical al Qaeda splinter group known for beheadings and rapes), and slopping it together with sophomoric (and easily disproved) right wing talking points, would be entertaining or believable? FOX News…Ironically, there’s a line in the audiobook where a political leader quips to ‘never let a crisis go to waste’. Right. Forstchen doesn’t here. There are ways of getting the word out on the brutalities of ISIS, and it’s important to do just that. Not like this, not by casting other Americans as satanic who disagree with you on gun rights or immigration or what day of the week taco Tuesday should be on. Good lord, this doesn’t help the country--this reckless emoting. Day of Wrath was offensive. Forstchen is fiercely intelligent--and surely knows better. I enjoyed Pillar to the Sky, his previous work. It’s hard for me to believe the same brain wrote this. Maybe a minion did and everything got out of hand. I mean, check out the cover art. It looks like a dumpster fire for Forstchen’s status as a writer. He sold out to filthy politics and wing-nut name-calling for this one; the issue of ISIS is too important to be this thoughtless towards tax-paying Americans, whose only sin seems to be that they disagree with him on highly debatable matters. And here I thought the jokester had a PhD. Oh, and Bronson Pinchot, whose work I know like the back of my hand, has contempt for the story the whole way through. He speeds through it. At ludicrous speed. Like a teenager cleans his room--only going through the motions, quickly pushing the junk into the closet and running away to meet his friends and go play. I don’t blame him. Nice diatribe, Forstchen. I was looking for an intelligent, coherent plot. That probably would save more lives than this intellectual, literary vandalism. The FOX Newsy Echo-chamber Fantasy Bubble will soak this up like ants to sugar, though. Yay.
