Renowned zombie expert Max Brooks reveals how troops have defended themselves against the undead in his new graphic novel, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks (Three Rivers Press).
Brooks says the most successful army against sudden zombie attacks were the Romans, who were organized and practical.
Instead of panicking like other groups, the Romans worked together to kick butt. It helped that they knew that decapitation is only way to truly kill a zombie.
Brooks says the worst army to face the living dead were the men of St. Lucia in A.D. 1862, who were plain ignorant.
Although zombies have yet to descend on modern-day civilizations, Brooks says no one is safe.
With the world so overcrowded, zombies are likely to strike at any moment.
He suggests people have well-constructed survival plans, control their fear, and, like the Romans, utilize teamwork.
