U.S. History and zombies in one volume? Yes, please…
A very enjoyable “true” account of U.S. history from the zombie angle. Who knew that zombies almost thwarted Washington’s crossing of the Delaware? Or that war in the Pacific was helped by the Berzerker’s Corps (zombie unit)? Or that Meriweather Lewis was in fact a zombie hybrid through most of the journey across the Louisiana Purchase? I didn’t. And I call myself a history teacher.
In all seriousness, this is a great, fun parody of history. I loved the tongue-in-cheek tone throughout most of the entries. At times, I did find myself skimming the nonzombie history sections (I do know my fair share of u.s. history). But that’s okay, it was still immensely enjoying!
