You could drag it through the mud, leave it in the sand, you could drop it in saltwater and let it sit there for days. Not just blood and guts, we get to know first hand about this event from start to finish and all the details in between. It's unbelievable, in fact, how entertaining and engrossing this novel is throughout its middle, given how this is usually the part of any book that is the slowest and least interesting; here Brooks uses the naturally slow middle of his own story to make the majority of his political points, and to get into a really wonky side of global politics that is sure to satisfy all you hardcore policy junkies as well as military fetishists.

And given his choice to develop Max Brooks' bestselling novel, which tells the tale of a worldwide zombie outbreak through the oral history format, that big-screen success felt like a signal that new life was about to be pumped into the.
Other countries suffer similarly disastrous defeats, and human civilization teeters on the brink of collapse.

It adds seven minutes of additional footage featuring moderate amounts of blood, gore and violence.
