Hailed by critics, this classic disaster novel about a nuclear holocaust in the United States—now available in a limited Olive Edition—continues to resonate with readers as strongly today as when it was first published in 1959 at the height of the Cold War.

“Alas, Babylon...”

Those fateful words heralded the end. When the unthinkable nightmare of nuclear holocaust ravaged the United States, it was instant death for tens of millions of people; for survivors, it was a nightmare of hunger, sickness, and brutality. Overnight, a thousand years of civilization were stripped away.

But for one small Florida town, spared against all the odds, the struggle was just beginning, as men and women of all ages and races found the courage to join together and push against the darkness.
