North Korea can also explode an EMP high above us with devastating consequences that we’re unprepared for.

Pentagton is Struggling with electronic warfare

TD Barnes, formerly with Army Intelligence, and a veteran of the NASA High Range and the CIA’s Area 51 in Nevada has a three-book series published in paperback and ebook that depicts the world following an preemptive EMP attack on the United States. Books by TD Barnes

The EMP series realistically depicts the life of the survivors living underground in the aftermath of an EMP and nuclear attack that destroys electronic devices and the electric power grids over much of the world.
In Book 1, survivors of an atmospheric EMP attack followed by a nuclear attack take refuge inside the Yucca Mountain underground complex in Nevada. This mismatch of personalities struggle to survive the resulting nuclear winter while living confined inside a mountain under siege by lethal radiation levels and other survivors fighting for water and food.
Book One takes the reader through the attack and realistically addresses logistics, security, survivor selection, social, cultural, education, and other issues required to prepare a society capable of rebuilding a nation devoid of the technology they once depended on.
Warning – you will find in this book that the aftermath of an EMP attack is not pretty.

In Book 2, the survivors come out of the Yucca Mountain underground complex to find themselves under the surveillance of Islamic activists who survived in Central America devastated by the nuclear winter. The Brotherhood is relocating to the farmlands in Arizona and takes control of the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River for the generated electricity needed by the Islamic calibrate. The jet stream returns the fallout of the nuclear winter back to the region. The survivors in the mountain repel attacks by the Brotherhood and enter the next phase of nuclear winter prepared to battle the Islamic Brotherhood and drive them from the region.

Book Three realistically depicts life post World War III. After four years, the EMP and nuclear winter survivors finally emerge from their underground shelter with expectations of resuming life free of the restrictions imposed by martial law. They continue their battle with Islamic Jihadists commenced shortly before the return of nuclear winter. The main body of survivors relocates to Nellis AFB to begin rebuilding a society. The hardships continue with the survivors again driven into shelters from El Nino winds carrying radiation carried aloft by the fire storms raging on the West Coast. The nuclear winter returns early, but not before the outpost at the mountain and base camp at Nellis AFB establish visual communication. A fast-moving storm carrying lethal radiation levels takes a heavy toll on the mountain survivors.

Great book by TD Barnes, author of Soaring With The Eagles

Rating:

Soaring
T.D.:
Just finished your book, what a pleasure. This book has got to be
the best documentation about the Ranch that has ever been written.
Only a very few would have the experience and the overall knowledge
to even attempt such a task. Congratulations on completing this task,
it should be mandatory reading for all Roadrunners!

Col. Jeffrey Church, the head of the Army’s electronic warfare division, in a recent interview said that the United States doesn’t have the gear. Colonel Church reports, “We’re working on getting it, [but] we’re talking years down the road, when our adversaries are doing this right now.”

    Area 51 Veteran TD Barnes Autobiography Soaring With The Eagles Released

    Soaring_thumbPreviously published as My Odyssey to Area 51, TD Barnes added to and republished his autobiography as Soaring With The Eagles to include the others associated with his Cold War career.

    His family and friends never knew he worked on special projects for the CIA. Fifty years later, the CIA admits the existence of the top-secret facility known as Area 51. Barnes, an Area 51 and Cold War veteran tells what brought him from a desolate childhood on a remote ranch in the West Texas Panhandle, and through an Army career in radar and missiles to Area 51 to serve the CIA as an electronic specialist engaged in stealth and clandestine exploitation of enemy aircraft.

    Thornton D. “TD” Barnes, author and entrepreneur, grew up on a ranch at Dalhart, Texas, graduated from MT. View High School, Oklahoma, followed by a ten-year military career that started as an Army Intelligence in Korea to Nike and Hawk missile schools, and ended with his attending Artillery OCS where an injury ended his military career.

    Barnes served during the arms, nuclear, and space races that made it America’s battlefield of World War II, the cold war and all the wars since. My Odyssey To Area 51 by TD Barnes provides a personal account of the selection process for admission into Area 51. The book follows his odyssey through his childhood on a ranch in New Mexico, his military career, involvement with the NSA, CIA, and NASA that brought him to Area 51. The book follows the career of a veteran of the NASA High Range where he and others pioneered the NASA X-15, XB-70, and Lifting Bodies to place Americans in space. The CIA selected Barnes for a special projects team during CIA A-12 Project OXCART at Area 51 where he remained as Special Projects cadre for the Soviet MiG exploitation programs, the early days of stealth. The book includes the personal sacrifices of the family to support Barnes’ career while not knowing what he did or where. They followed him to places where the Army issued his wife Doris and their child, dog tags and required mandatory practice evacuation runs in preparation for war. Barnes’ name is engraved on a national memorial monument on Mt. Charleston, Nevada with a distant view of Area 51. The monument is in recognition of the Silent Heroes of the Cold War who worked at Area 51.

    This book covers much of the recently declassified and rich military and technological deeds that are the legacy of Nevada and aviation and aerospace. The author is president of Roadrunners Internationale, an association of the CIA, Air Force, and contractor personnel who worked at Area 51. He co-founded the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame and served as its first Executive Director for almost five years. Several books and documentaries on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, and two on National Geographic have featured Barnes’ career at Area 51.

    TD and Doris formed a family oil and gas exploration company drilling and producing oil and gas, mining uranium and gold. He is currently CEO of Startel, Inc. landowner and actively mining landscape rock and gold in Nevada.
    Barnes is currently the president of Roadrunners Internationale, an association of Area 51 veterans, and formerly the first executive director of the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame

    The History Channel, the Discovery Channel, the Travel Channel, and others feature him in two National Geographic Channel documentaries “Area 51 Declassified” and “CIA – Secrets of Area 51,” and numerous documentaries. The Annie Jacobsen book, Area 51 Declassified also features his career.

    Barnes’ books are available on Amazon, B&N, Apple, iTunes, CreateSpace, and Smashwords.
