Review of Zombies of Iwo Jima by Dane Hatchell

5 Stars-This just reinforces why I’m a Dane Hatchell fan!!-Zombies of Iwo Jima by Dane Hatchell successfully combines history & zombie fiction, to make a wonderfully frightening and superbly gory little tale. Our boys are fighting the war, stuck on Iwo Jima, trying to survive the visciously cruel Japanese. As if that isn’t bad enough, toss in Japanese zombies, munching away on their enemy. Hatchell does an amazing job of integrating zombies into historical facts, to make another new twist on the genre, and makes for a very entertaining, and even educational, read for all lovers of the genre. Way to go Dane!!! Here’s the link:
