      Eventually, they'll finish devouring all of NYC and will starve to death. In a few hundred years, maybe NYC can be repopulated with non-scum.

        That's a negative, ghostrider, NY can never be cleansed of its filth even with nuclear hellfire. Your best bet is to turn the state into a radioactive crater and forbid citizens from traveling there. It's the only way to be sure the globohomo doesn't re-emerge on the East Coast. New Jersey should then be quarantined and threatened with likewise erasure if they don't fix their shit.

    The apaches and artillery would have been more than sufficient, everyone else could just go home. No particular tactics necessary either, its a slow moving massed target that uses no cover, cannot return fire and makes no attempt to avoid incoming fire. Even if you assume that the flesh stays alive in perpetuity rather than death when the head is destroyed, you're just going to end up with fields of twitching smoking gore piles rather than some unstoppable horde.

          That's retarded. The power of explosives comes from shrapnel and the shockwave destroying tissue. Pain is an indication of injury, not something in and of itself. A zombie that cannot feel pain would become injured and just not realize it - nothing more.

Military increasingly relied upon to restore order and provide basic services. People keep bringing their infected family members to military bases and outbreaks keep happening. Soldiers without pay and no support slowly desert to go home and protect their families."

            This is why the only good zombie story ever was Return of the Living Dead.

            The zombies are virtually invincible, super strong, and intelligent enough to speak and lay ambushes. Any corpse, from a skeleton to a man sawed in half top to bottom, reanimates as a brain eating berserker almost instantly after being touched by the magical Trioxin liquid. Burning is the only reliable way to stop a zombie, but this releases more Trioxin into the air, which can animate more undead in the form of rain.

          Explosions don't work because the swarm is already a million strong. Nobody turned up ready to kill a cities worth of people and didn't have the resources to do so. The troops holding the line aren't trained to consistently pop off headshots at at approaching horde, which is both physically and mentally demanding. The book does quite a lot of explaining.

            They dropped bombs and even cluster bombs after leading a huge swarm into an open field and didn't do anything. Since the bombs mostly don't hit the brain and instead just fuck up their limbs, they just keep coming. They realized setting up a firing line is a lot more effective as long as they aim for the head.

            Also the zombies are immune to huge amounts of pressure for some reason. People initially went to remote islands thinking they were safe but the zombies just walked on the bottom of the ocean floor and onto the island. I think there was a section where deep sea divers had to go down and kill all the zombies just shuffling around on the bottom of the ocean.

              Which is why I said the book runs on fiat. That's not how brains work, pressure waves pulverize tissues just the same as if a chunk of lead passes through them. For the premise to work, the military needs to behave in the most consistently retarded manner possible, the zombies need to be totally immune to decomposition despite having essentially non-functional immune systems, and they need to just selectively ignore the laws of physics regarding pressure waves, but then still die to bullets.
              The book is fine, you just need to accept that things fall apart if you think about them, so don't think.

                So the generals are too prepared to fight a defensive war, but it's not an elastic defense at all, they're practically built into their positions and can't move.

                Nah, the virus apparently is naturally occurring and there have been historical outbreaks (if the zombie survival guide is canon, even the fucking ancient Romans knew of it and successfully put down a couple outbreaks). The outbreak starts in China, where some rural kid gets bitten by something while diving in a reservoir dam built over an abandoned city. The infection then spreads in the rural communities around the dam because the locals are absolute fucking retards before the chink commies notice it. This is where a well-written realistic story would end; the PRC would crack down on the area and send PLA to gun down anyone who is either infected or knows too much. Nobody in the world cares about it outside of some Amnesty International hippies who write a couple of open letters about how the PRC is cracking down on dumbfuck villagers in the province of Shi-tno-bod Ycares. But not in Brooksland, where chicks round up the infected and throw them into political prison camps where they can spread the infection further, before starting to stripmine the zombies for organs to sell on the international black market, which causes the infection to spread across the world.

                To be entirely fair to Brookes, assuming that there's no evil wizard spreading the virus, everyone on the planet has to be about as retarded as they can be before a zombie outbreak would be more than a local problem. Granted having it happen in central New York would be a much bigger problem than it happening in Middle'o'nowhere, Bumfuckistan - but it still shouldn't get much further than that.

                The entire premise of zombies is idiotic. The only way it “works” is by literal magic, otherwise the whole thing goes against biology and the laws of physics. If zombies are unaffected by blood loss, how are their muscles getting oxygen and glucose to do literally anything. And then the excuse of “oh the brain isn’t taking as much anymore” gets tossed around like that’s supposed to help, despite supposedly not needing blood flow in the first place. Zombies take the apex predator on the planet and take away the number one thing making us deadly (intelligence) and oftentimes the second most thing (endurance running).

            The author uses the voice of a completely retarded E-nothing to explain that, somehow, despite the use of 120mm Canister, HEAT, autocannons and heavy machineguns, cluster bombs, artillery fire did not completely shatter the hordes. Even if we took the most absurd levels of "ah, but they were only blown apart! the upper half was still attached to the head and they could crawl towards the soldiers!" and assumed it was the way it worked, eventually you just have tens of thousands of shattered upper torsos with heads pulling themselves along the pavement towards you. They're easily killed by machinegun fire.
            The writer has no military experience of his own and makes some *huge* fucking leaps in logic to explain why tanks are then firing SABOT rounds into the crowds

            They dropped bombs and even cluster bombs after leading a huge swarm into an open field and didn't do anything. Since the bombs mostly don't hit the brain and instead just fuck up their limbs, they just keep coming. They realized setting up a firing line is a lot more effective as long as they aim for the head.

            Also the zombies are immune to huge amounts of pressure for some reason. People initially went to remote islands thinking they were safe but the zombies just walked on the bottom of the ocean floor and onto the island. I think there was a section where deep sea divers had to go down and kill all the zombies just shuffling around on the bottom of the ocean.

            then you have guys like this guy who think cluster bombs are just regular bombs and aren't filled with tons of tiny bomblets and stuff filled with shrapnel that could easily penetrate a human brain. Same with m1028 canister shot. Though now it'd be M1147 on airburst mode.
            Ultimately the book is badly written. It's meant to set up the author's reformist-like world view where a new battle rifle made from bottom of the barrel components and chambered in 7.62mm (??) is used to kill the endless hordes instead, and all the US military's vast, useless technology is discarded instead.
            It's badly written, there's no need to go "but um".

              The explanation was that each tank only has a few canister rounds and the rest were SABOT/HEAT.

              The artillery and airstrikes definitely obliterate the zombies, but i believe the attacking force was over a million, so they just didn't have enough munitions. The narrator also makes an explicit point as to the hubris and unpreparedness of the commanders. So yes they do act stupidly, but it's acknowledged.

        They run out of ammo, basically, being only prepared for a standard peer vs peer firefight. They also have the landmate system (portable vision device so each trooper can patch in what they see to a nearby tank or commander) One helicopter broadcasts the view of Millions of Zs approaching, followed by another broadcasting when he gets scoffed by a Z while using the toilet. The entire army does well at first, it's a meatgrinder, but eventually runs out of ammo. then when the closeup gets broadcast to every trooper and the Zs just keep coming, everyone panics and runs for it.

      Look dude, I realize the HRT makes you passive aggressive, but try to be reasonable here. Even if we accept the premise that corpses get up and walk around, they are fundamentally corpses. What do corpses do that humans do not? Rot, practically from the moment of expiration; in peak summer with bugs and carrion the muscles can be stripped in days. Beyond that, they're just human bodies with no magic resistances to the same things we spent the last 20 years vaporizing afghans with. Grenades rip legs off, mortars strip flesh from bone and JDAMs leave just pink mist and bone fragments.

      I don’t give a remote fuck what kind of braindead capeshit tier plot armor some meme virus gives you because there is no way in hell anything is still going to be moving when their CNS just got fucked by an autocannon or their muscles completely melted away into bone from fire and explosions. By then there wouldn’t even be anything physically left to make them capable of movement from the pressure waves alone, nevermind the kinetic act of being ripped apart and flying around like a ragdoll from all the explosions. Cluster bombs have all sorts of shrapnel in them, if the initial explosion didn’t kill them then them getting diced like that one scene with the laser room in Resident Evil should.

      I always saw it as their brain reanimating itself like a meat puppet controlled by The Virus™, or the Left 4 Dead route where its basically super rabies, so technically they’re not actually dead and thus a corpse, just a victim of the super rabies. But even then an actual corpse would still keep decomposing over time animated or not, and will eventually reach a point where the muscles capable of movement are just gone, hence why they shuffle around from rigor mortis and shit.

But say it does, because the book is full of fuddlore and the zombies might as well be magic. Modern artillery and air munitions will flat-out vaporize a human into shit haze, and things like basic mine laying, artillery, etc, would melt their numbers like nothing else. Ok, there’s a million of them. Send in a pile of tanks and AFV, shit on the horde with mines, artillery and air power, and pick off the wriggling corpses left over with your coax or mounted weapons. Then napalm the place before it becomes the biggest home for rot and disease since India.

      It's always a problem with fiction where the author NEEDS a scene to go a certain way but doesn't put in the leg-work to make sure that there are no other options built into the scene, it just comes across as everyone in the scene suddenly taking an 80 point drop in IQ. WWZ needed Yonkers to be a catastrophic failure, with the military being completely unable to deal with the new threat, so that the book could set up the complete change to everything that the zombies bring about.

      If it's any consolation it's not the most retarded thing in the book. Remember that he has all of Britain running back to the castles (99.999% of which are ruins, refitted as posh houses, and/or museums post 1400) and fighting the zombies off with spears and zweihanders.

          actually let me delve into that a bit more. One of his big things was the SIR rifle, which is described as being a rifle similar to the mini-14 but chambered in "7.62" and is semi auto only.
          That's it. That's how he solved the US military's problems.
          So if your "solutions" take 5 minutes, naturally you only take five minutes explaining why they were a problem to begin with. It's intellectual bankruptcy all the way down.

                The problem is that .30 Carbine is a pretty niche round nowadays. 5.56, x39, 7.62 NEATO/.308, 12 gauge, etc. will be everywhere but .30 Carbine hasn’t been in vogue for decades, even around the early 2000’s. With that you’d have to pick your battles *very* carefully, and even then the threat of getting caught unawares is still ever present.

        It's not even that hard to make a scenario that's somewhat believable. Instead of Yonkers why not a little further north in CT where there is actually forest. Say that they don't want to fight in a metro area because of collateral damage to both people and infrastructure. Then have a really bad thunderstorm or heavy fog or something so soldiers don't see as well. The trees and hills make tanks less viable, helicopters can't see through the fog and the tree canopy is blocking thermals, arty was deemed too excessive or they wanted direct line of sight confirmation from infantry or some bullshit.

        That still could be picked apart as bullshit but I spent 5 minutes thinking about it. It's not the best scenario but would be move believable that infantry without support could be overrun because they couldn't see the horde until it's too late. Then morale loss, panic, whatever bullshit about how everyone else gave up after that (which is dumb)

    Also, a buddy of mine was an artillery guy in the Muhreens. He told me that there were a couple guys who would probably have cum if their daily briefing was “So today we’re going to be shooting at a bunch of unarmored infantry in the open. They will not take cover. You will not face counter battery fire. You have what might as well be an endless stockpile of ammunition to use. When given the signal, you will fire as fast as possible continuously until the barrel warps. Also, all of the targets are from New York”

      they had to re-tool, from the ground up, in the middle of the fucking apocalypse, just to make semi-auto only rifles because everyone somehow forgot about the switch on the M4

      I wonder what the ratio of Civilian AR-15s to M-4s and M-16s is anyway? Surely a request to PSA could have every soldier equipped with a Semi-auto only rifle in short order if the concept of welding had somehow escaped armorers the world over.

        He seems to take "artillery shrapnel is not an aimed rifle shot, so it will kill zombies, but for every fragment that hits a brain there will be hundreds that don't" to mean "Zombie skulls are shrapnel proof, but not bullet proof". I don't think he understands just how much shrapnel there would be in the air in a situation like Yonkers where you have dozens of howitzers rapid firing on a single position.

      Easily spread like the common cold, mild symptoms, delayed onset (1-2 months) that makes you into a cannibal. Other option is it's highly infectious and highly deadly (like 90+%) and that the survivors are naturally immune for some reason. Basically it's not a matter of if you get sick, it's when. Even if you don't have direct contact.

      >Lazy Dog projectiles could be dropped from almost any kind of flying vehicle. They could be hurled from buckets, dropped by hand, thrown in their small shipping bags made of paper, or placed in a Mark 44 cluster adaptor—a simple hinged casing with bins built in to hold the projectiles, opened by a mechanical time delay fuze. The adaptors themselves were 69.9 inches (1.78 m) long and 14.18 inches (36.0 cm) in diameter. They would be shipped empty, then filled by hand. Depending on how many projectiles could be packed in, loaded weight varied between 560 and 625 pounds (254 and 283 kg), with the theoretical maximum number of projectiles listed as 17,500.
      >Regardless of how they were released into the air, each "Lazy Dog" projectile would develop an enormous amount of kinetic energy as it fell, penetrating nearly any material upon hitting the ground. Some reports say that their speeds often exceeded 700 feet per second (210 m/s; 480 mph; 770 km/h) before impact.[6]
      They should be pretty cheap to produce given that they're literally just 20g of steel shaped to be somewhat aerodynamic, simple as fuck to deploy and low tech thus getting that +400% reformer buff against zombies, and on hit, even if they miss the head, they'll smash through the upper body thus reducing zombie combat effectiviness by making it harder for them to grab someone.

    This book sucks and people have beaten to death why it sucks.

    Use tanks with canister rounds, truck-mounted CIWS, all the cluster bombs you can ask for, put all infantry on high rise buildings with no ground access. Throw in some mine flails and steamrollers for good measure. All this bullshit about headshots and extreme pressure is nonsense, getting hit in the body with shrapnel is going to destroy limbs and prevent zombies from doing anything more than drag themselves along the ground with their chins.

    I enjoyed this book and fully intend to have my kids read it when they're between 10-15 or something. It's a fun story and an interesting take on the genre.

    But everything about how the military handles literally everything is written exceptionally retardedly. I don't understand how any adult on this board could possibly try to defend the Battle of Yonkers in the slightest, let alone 95% of the rest of the military's conduct in the book. It's clearly written by someone with 0 understanding of the shit he needed to get out of the way to make the plot go forward. Which isn't bad, but the defense of it as being totally sensical and justified is pants-on-head.

      Aside from the military being retarded, the main issue is that zombies are inconsistent: they're tough enough to withstand nearby bomb blasts and walk through Mariana trench with ease, but they're also frail enough that a random housewife can tear one part with her bare hands and a blind 80-year-old Japanese dude can kill dozens with a spade. The atmosphere is pretty decent, but as soon as you start thinking too much about how zombies function, it all falls apart. Things get worse if you assume that the survival guide takes place in the same universe as WWZ (as it is somewhat implied), because if it does, then after 60 000 years of zombies being around and smaller outbreaks occurring every now and then, there is no real excuse why humanity hasn't yet figured out how to effectively deal with zombies.

    Up-armor a bunch of steamrollers and bulldozers (cheap sheet steel would be more than sufficient, doesn't need to stop bullets), and just roll them through the horde.

    Also, lure and funnel a bunch of them into giant pits and set them all on fire. Hard for zombies to be a threat when all their muscle tissue has been cooked solid and their brains have been boiled inside their skulls. The fire doesn't have to destroy them, it just has to COOK them.

            Is this shitposting or a legit thing in Japan for that movie?

          No it comes from this death poem

          My whole life long I’ve sharpened my sword
          And now, face to face with death
          I unsheathe it, and lo-
          The blade is broken-
          Alas! – Dairin Soto, 1568

    Better question is how do you contain an outbreak of the T-Virus without using tomahawk missiles (These were retconned to Nukes).

      raccoon city was never cleansed with tomahawks, first it was a nuke, then it was a couple of thermobaric warheads, then it was all of that as well as a shitton of missiles, then to some "anti-biological weapon" which is really only canon in the remakes, which are their own canon

      also, the answer is still going to be to cleanse the area since anything biological can be infected, including bugs and animals

    Never read the book, but I lure the zombies into a small, semi-contained, low-elevation zone like a valley... round up as many firefighting helicopters as possible, and have them saturation fire the area with enough mustard gas to kill 300,000,000 elephants. "Mustard gas" at normal temperatures is actually a liquid, rather than a gas. Dispensing it through firefighting hoses from high altitude could give the liquid enough force to vaporize when it hits the ground. If you think this won't stop the zombies, then you clearly do not understand the effects of this compound. There are clear reasons it's banned in war, and it's not "muh suffering." It's because it is extremely effective at killing. This would utterly trivialize the threat of the zombies, as we can just deploy gas copters wherever we need them and back them up with infantry in high elevation cover.

    Naturally, the way into Yonkers would also be completely covered with landmines, as would the perimeter around the valley. They might not always kill the zombies, but we can take the crawlers out easily.

    fixed bayonets in rows, rotations to reduce fatigue, and large round shot, ideally reusable
    gunpowder/ordinance conservation is the priority and there's no reason to worry about penetration for zombies even though penetration is 2/3rds of what we've optimized for - range is also no longer a concern, so why rifle?
    areas where raw zombie mass is pushing back the line should be addressed with armored vehicles sparingly (so as to preserve fuel), ideally killdozers with wheeled projections, like a crop tiller
    any/all long range warheads should be incendiary or napalm, and they need to be shot sufficiently far away from the frontline that troops are not at risk due to spread, while still reducing zombie pressure
    Yonkers is supposed to be a choke point, so clearing biomass is necessary, clear the corpses with killdozers, toss mines down behind them, pull back, let the next round of zombies detonate the mines, and repeat indefinitely

      Not that I care that much but its a very common example of this slightly annoying thing where people appeal to fiction when discussing things. Obviously zombies are fiction themselves so it's not the best example but the weapons people are talking about using against them exist so people discuss it then someone goes.

      Because they worship their guns and see them as the solution to every problem they can think of. The idea that in a book someone suggest that guns don't make the baddie go away, is something that terrifies and enrages them. It's like telling Mormons that their god is shit.

    i havent read the book since it came out but IIRC the battle of yonkers portrayed the us armed forces as retarded to the point of being comically absurd (using gun battle tactics against a swarming enemy opponent)

    its understandable that you cant develop and re equip your army with specialized anti zombie weapons overnight and have to resort to using regular guns and weapons for a while but digging foxholes? come on.

    i would
    >get US armed forces every excavator and bulldozer in the continental US.
    >have every barbed wire factory running in shifts 24/7 and make some new ones.
    the battlefield before battle, funnel the zombies into an ultra dense bottleneck and use barbed wire to slow them down
    >hammer them with heavy artillery inside bottlenecks
    >defense in depth, each line covers the line in front of it as it's retreating in clear evacuation routes with preprepared barbed wire mousetraps to close the routes behind them
    >retreat is sounded when the number of zombies getting out of the ditch filled with bodies and barbed wire and getting close to the next line of troops gets too dangerous, they retreat while the next line covers.
    >transportation for all troops ready after the final line for the evacuation
    >attack helis with guns and big rocket pods patrol the battlefield and watch for sneaky zombie pushes from unexpected directions.

      Keep in mind the strength of American Media. EVERYTHING in the US is about making a telivised event. Look at how many advertising breaks you fuckers squeeze into your football games. It's quite believable that a president, general and all the media seeking officers would set everything up with a focus on making a "Woohaa, America technology is the best!" telivised propaganda piece than a proper battle.

    with a method, gather alot of them into one place, and use napalm to clear out the majority, why napalm? it'll burn EVERYTHING, once the fire reaches the brain, they'll drop dead, or if that doesn't come soon enough, collapse because they have been damaged beyond moving.
    The rest? We'll just run em over with tanks maybe burn more shit along the way, fire is a pretty effective tool, after all is said and done, all beaches will be heavily fortified, because for some fucking reason, zombies don't get crushed (Along with their heads) on the sea floor.

    Assuming you can kill 5000 zombies in a work day you'd only need 2000 troops. Fire bomb the are afterwards to dispose of the corpses and mop up the rest the old fashioned way.
    You'd have to be a complete retard to engage them any other way.

    "HE projectile body is manufactured of forged steel AISI 1045. The 155 mm HE M107 filling may be either 6,62 kg of cast TNT or 6,985 kg of Composition B. A TNT-filled 155 mm HE M107 will produce approximately 1.950 fragments on detonation. The south African 155 mm ERFB produces approximately 7.000 fragments (probably HF-1 steel) with an individual mass larger than 0,5 g using nominal payload of 8,71 kg of RDX/TNT 50:50."

    I round up all the morons and send them in first, I make the prospect of victory appealing to them by saying there is all the watermelon and fired chicken in the world waiting for them if they are victorious. Then once they are in combat, I use danger close artillery and napalm. There might be some friendly fire, but I'm willing to risk it.

    Do what they eventually do in the book - train all the troops to shoot for the head, not the body. Semi auto fire only, everyone lined up in three rank civil war style musket lines. Lots of ammo, with the rear line troops replacing the front line as they get tired, stressed out or run empty. Keep it going, slow and steady for days until all the slow moving Zs are dead.

    There was about 4 millions zombies. Volume of an average is 0.06 m3. So, you need to dig up a hole of 240 000 m3. Let's round it up to 300 000 m3. So, you need a hole of 30 meters deep, 100m wide and 100m long and lure zombies in it. Not that hard. If you use the nuke, you can dig up a giant ass crater in a matter of days. Lure zombies in the hole and then set it on fire, or nuke it, I dunno, anything should work.
