不知彼,不知己,每戰必殆


So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.

If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.

If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Any web-series worth its salt starts with a deep inspiring quote from some old texts; this one is no exception. The above quote is an idiom derived from the ancient manuscript of The Art of War, a 6th century BC collection of military documents covering every aspect of war, written by military general and strategist Sun Tzu.

Knowing your enemy and knowing yourself is the best step to being prepared for any eventually. However one thing that is lacking in any form of media is material to prepare peoples for the zombie apocalypse; the uprising of ex-humans brought about by a savage relentless biological virus. It will be the first ever world war where countries are not fighting each other, but fighting an enemy within. It will sweep through lands, not sparing those who leave their planning and preparations to the last minute.

In the coming weeks, with the aim to educate people and to get material out there for people to circulate in the future, I’ll be writing about the following areas of zombie survival:

  1. The Enemy. Who and what zombies are. < Out now
  2. Pre-ZomPoc Training. Training & skills you can learn now that may just save your skin. < Out now
  3. Your Shelter. How and where to call your home, temporarily and permanently.
  4. Arming and Protecting Yourself. Weaponry 101 for what to handle and what to drop.
  5. Your Gear. What to keep in your rucksack, and what to avoid.
  6. Getting About. Vehicles, transport and general movement in apocalyptic times.
  7. Starting a fresh! Either civilisation restarts or the zombies have won… your choice!

If you’re thinking you know nothing about the above areas, please stay tuned for some upcoming articles. Also pray to your gods that a outbreak of the killer virus doesn’t happen before the series ends.
