Synopsis: Publisher's description: Tomorrow's war -- the war that could not be. The army of the United States was stationed along the length of the Mississippi River, guns pointed east -- with orders to shoot anyone attempting to cross. For the Final War was not a war of the ultimate bomb, of atomic hell. It was a war of the tiny germ, the filterable virus, the disease that came to conquer a nation -- and stayed to damn a world."
