World War III has reduced America's purpled mountain majesty to a battle-seared landscape of blasted rubble and toxic waste. A few tattered pockets of civilization struggle to exist, always in the shadow of the advancing Soviet killing machine. Only one man dares to challenge it. John Thomas Rourke, ex-CIA Cover Operations officer and weapons specialist, has become an expert at the art of survival in a peril-strewn world. New forces are at work to destroy democracy in the dark halls of Dietrich Zimmer's headquarters. Obsessed with genetic experiments, the fascist leader holds Rourke's beloved Sarah hostage and threatens to kill her unless the Survivalist agrees to undertake a suicide mission to retrieve Zimmer's unltimate price: the frozen corpse of Adolf Hitler. Fighting their way across New Yorks poisonous wastelands, Rourke and brave commandos must penetrate an ancient mountain complex and do battle with an underground race of high-tech warriors to seize their unholy cargo and stop Zimmeers plan to annihilate America's future forever! The Survivalist.
