AFTER THE COLLAPSE:How to Fight and Survive the American Wars
The Defense of a Town after a Full Social Collapse
by Sam Coffman.
Farrell stood, poised at the top of the rock outcropping overlooking the south end of the small town of Grindelia which was nestled in a small valley in the Wet Mountain range in southern Colorado, on the Arkansas river. “It’s a very defensible town,” Farrell thought to himself as he scanned the activity below with the focus of a hawk searching for prey.
His team had been here for less than a week, and already the town was in vastly better shape to withstand an onslaught of raiders that was certain to arrive before winter.
Farrell’s team was composed of himself and three friends who had all served as U.S. Special Forces (aka “green beret”) soldiers who had teamed up after the “Collapse” – as it was now called. They had taken nearly 2 months making their way north from Texas to Colorado, enduring several skirmishes and winning or successfully disengaging from most, finally reaching Farrell’s home town of Grindelia in August. Communication along the way with anyone, much less anyone from his home town had been negligible and they had all hoped for the best. Fortunately they were not disappointed and aside from a few lone troublemakers, the tiny town of less than 400 residents had been virtually unscathed through the past full year of post-collapse chaos around the country.
