There is no unexplained virus that turns people into zombies. There is no band of preppers that have a stocked hideout to bug out to. Unlike most novels of this genre, the author provides a very credible, actually very likely, background as to how the collapse of America occurs, and then how a normal middle class community responds to the breakdown of society. In the near future, worldwide political and military strife increases, and Israel is forced to try to take out Iran's nuclear facilities weeks before they complete a nuclear weapon. Iran and Islamic terrorists accelerate their long-planned strike against the "Great Satan" in revenge. An average American middle class community is faced with a sudden and complete breakdown of the U.S. economy, government, and society after a massive, nation-wide Islamic terrorist attack combined with a devastating cyber attack on American infrastructure. Like the vast majority of Americans, none of the residents of Sea Breezes have a convenient bunker in the woods or a compound of survivalist friends to escape to. They have to find some way to organize themselves in order to survive with what they have on hand, and what they can obtain by using their own wits and determination. Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Richard Cantrell and his brother-in-law, former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Josh Koenig, residents of the Florida community, volunteer to help, and what follows is the riveting and often heart-breaking account of a community coming to grips with the unthinkable. "Defending Sea Breezes” is a complex story that weaves together international Islamic terrorism, government foreign policy failures, and the indomitable American spirit, to portray one of the most realistic and compelling “what if” stories of survival, all in one complete, stand-alone novel. Unlike similar novels, this story gives a realistic, even probable, military and political background for the Collapse. Advisories: If you believe that America's foreign policy over the last 7 years has been on the right course you will not enjoy this book. Because this novel contains contemporary dialogue, it contains some profanity. Special note from the author: I have been working on this novel for many months, and as I was preparing to publish it, the horrific events of the ISIS massacre in Paris occurred. Unfortunately, those attacks fit exactly into the story line of my novel, and the event was easily incorporated; in fact, I only modified one sentence to do so. It is disturbing, but all too predictable in today's world, when terrorism fiction becomes fact....

    Great StoryI very much enjoyed this book. Interesting take on "retired" life in Florida during a crisis. It truly showed the resilience of folks in a difficult situation. I would certainly like to hear the "rest of the story"!!

    Another great new authorI have to say first, I'm extremely partial to authors that have military experiences. Being a granddaughter, daughter, wife, mother of currently serving, veterans and a veteran, it seems much more realistic of the settings when written from a veterans perspective.The pace is a easy one to follow with great characters and lots of personality quirks. I like especially that the setting was more geared in a township. It's easy to envision that a small community could and would be able to defend themselves. As always I take away the knowledge the author lends to his story. Good luck and thank you. An enjoyable couple of hours.

    Drowning in Sea BreezesNot bad for a first timer, but some what disappointed in this relative slow read. It took fifty pages before the action to begin and when it did, it was lacking as well.

    Sea BreezesJust read this interesting book. One of the first I could see it happening, realistic apocalypse story. 5 stars most definitely. I was surprised to learn this is his first book. Since Col. Thornton is retired, keep writing! Loved the book!

    Pretty good read; it starts off a bit clinical writing style, but quickly starts flowing. Some good characters to cheer for, as well as the required "idiotic whiner" there to provide some chuckles/head shakes.

    Good survivalist storyFairly realistic description of what could happen. Good read. Engaging and gets across the point without being overly preachy or overzealous.

    Great readAlways on the edge. You think you may know what is going to happen then some thing else comes along and changes everything.

    A book with lots of good informationThis was an excellent book with lots of information on survival and a very good read. Much better than your average disaster book.

    Started out ok but I thought the ending was lame and cliche.

    Fast read. Entertaining enough, although seemed to gloss over quite a bit of the story to get to a nice ending. If you like apocalyptic fiction, you might enjoy this short book.
