Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a introduction into the apocalyptic world of Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson.
The radio goes quiet while on convoy in Afghanistan, a lost patrol alone in the desert. With his unit and his home base destroyed, Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson suddenly finds himself isolated and in command of a small group of men trying to survive in the Afghan wasteland. The local population has been afflicted with an illness that turns them into rabid animals. They pursue him and his men at every corner and stop. Struggling to hold his team together and unite survivors, he must fight and evade his way to safety.
W. J. Lundy is a current member of the U.S. Military with service in Afghanistan. He is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Set in Afghanistan, this Escaping the Dead (Whiskey Foxtrot Tango) focuses on an active military unit out on patrol only to find complete radio silence, local blood crazed maniacs and their home base completely overrun by these ‘primal’ crazies. Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson struggles to remain alive, keep his unit intact and find out what is going on. Feelings of abandonment and never ending horror haunt these men in the Afghan wasteland.
An extremely short story, well written and action packed. The plot was well constructed and the character development was excellent. The plight Brad Thompson was almost tangible through vivid detailed descriptions. Listeners could get caught up in Thompsons being cut off from everyone, being chased by primals and not knowing the fate of his friends and family.
This is a unique zombie book as it takes a very small group of survivors and drops them in the middle of a wasteland, completely removed from everyone and everything except the enemy. They are not given the insight into what is happening or how it happened, where to go, what to do.
Lundy was considerate of his audience by not losing them in the descriptions of the military equipment. His writing style is laid back, informative and engrossing.
Eric Vincent did an excellent job of narrating and drawing the listener in with his talent.
The audio production of the book was well done.
I recommend this volume 1 to anyone who enjoys zombie/military genre.
