It's Zombies vs. the KKK in Allied Zombies for Peace. This novel discloses the explosive 42-minutes that transpired during the 1968 Veteran's Day Parade in Columbus, OH. Sparks fly when the Allied Zombies for Peace, a civic organization with sights on undead enfranchisement come to blows with the KKK, their long-time rival. Meanwhile with amped up tension between marching Vietnam War Veterans and members of an anti-war movement known as the New Revolutionaries for Peace and Love, also demonstrating in the parade, the streets of Columbus turn into an all-out war zone.
Allied Zombies for Peace presents an interesting alternate history perspective in true thriller, pulp fashion. The zombie rules are broken and urban combat breaks out into undead chaos. As far as civil rights historical fiction, Allied Zombies for Peace might feature monsters, but the kernels of the civil rights movement rest at the core of this fast-paced scary book.
