Buy Clay’s New Book ‘Prairie Fire: A Guidebook for Surviving Civil War 2’

Earlier this year, I released “Concrete Jungle: A Green Beret’s Guide to Urban Survival,” which you long time readers know was born of my very popular Urban Defense columns right here on GunsAmerica Digest. It was very lucky that I actually had it most of the way ready to go, just in time for the cities to start imploding back in June. Not that I ever wanted to be right on this one, but much of what I said would happen has indeed happened. And the rest is on the horizon.

Since Concrete Jungle was written with the city dweller in mind, another volume was needed. In July, I began work on “Prairie Fire: Guidebook for Surviving Civil War 2,” and am very happy to tell you it was published last week. This one was geared directly to the rural and in-between folks, for what to do when the cities crumble. It is a direct roadmap for how Red counties can survive a Civil War that the Blue counties seem so desperate to start.

Now, this isn’t a thing any of us like to think about, but neither is pulling out a bad tooth. Ignoring the problem won’t make it go away, it will just make it worse.  And this isn’t the fringe line of thinking it was at perhaps even the beginning of 2020. Relatively mainstream mouthpieces are calling for Civil War, internment camps for political enemies, and other fun things ranging from reeducation at gunpoint to forced sterilization. And I don’t mean on hidden video. This is what they are saying out loud.

Concrete Jungle updated cover.

Therefore, I felt it incumbent to pass what I learned over the 20 years of GWOT time on to our people as much as I could. Counterinsurgency. Intelligence networking. Offensive and defensive tactics. Organization and employment of troops. But done so in a manner that is accessible to everyone, not like some boring Army manual or idiotic RAND Corp. white paper that is 80% acronyms.

There are some other bits that aren’t directly for the GunsAmerica audience but are still useful if you have friends that are new to how we roll. The chapter on choosing weapons is a bad joke to you guys, I’m betting 99% of our normal audience has what I recommend ten times over. But it is another voice to the people that are no doubt scrambling to arm themselves right now, at the height of the panic.  It also has chapters on selecting equipment, logistics, and some old pro tricks that even you will find useful.

Lastly, Prairie Fire takes a hard look at the big picture strategic view of what is happening right now. What foreign players may be involved as we speak, as well as who may get involved as the situation escalates. What it means if our farmers can’t get crops harvested next year because we are in a shooting match. And what happens purely if we sideline ourselves as a nation for a few years, on the world stage.

GunsAmerica Digest worthy book mark

None of what is coming is going to be a good time. And I hope for all our sake, I’m very wrong. We can laugh about it over a beer at SHOT Show 2022, since the Bat Flu Cough already canceled 2021. But if I’m not? The window to get yourself and your family ready is very short. Once things start happening in earnest, they are likely to happen fast. “Prairie Fire” is the absolute best I could do at passing on what I know to ensure that you and your family walk out the other side of this intact. If you are like-minded, please give it a read.

    “The worse” that could happen?!? Jesus, Clay, at least learn how to spell.

    • Ozark Muleskinner January 26, 2021, 8:08 pm

      Worse vs worst? So that’s the most important, pertinent thought you had after reading about this book? I suspect you may be missing the big picture or the reason or the audience for which the author wrote this book.

      If I’m reading a Green Beret’s advice about how to ensure my family’s survival in an evermore likely conflict, the last thing that’s going to concern me is an occasional questionable word usage. For my part, I appreciate Mr. Martin taking the time to share his experience and expertise.

    Know that the FBI, NSA, and others monitor sites like this.

    Apparently Mr. Davis, though he may have been handy with a rifle, there’s probably a reason he wasn’t trusted to do much more than pull a trigger or teach other people to do so – and apparently he didn’t ever learn about or fully grasp the reach and power of the intelligence services.

    Most Green Berets I knew were pretty bright – he seems like a 40 Watt bulb in a 100 Watt box.

    Openly espousing revolt against our duly elected Gov’t – and make no mistake – as of right now it’s duly elected – in EVERY room in which votes have been counted there have been both Republican and Democratic poll watchers present – and EVERY lawsuit brought forth by Trump’s team has been summarily dismissed – mostly by Federal judges appointed by Republicans – because they simply have no proof. No basis in fact.

    I can accuse any of you of stealing all the gold from Fort Knox – but accusations without proof are just hot air.

    I’m a Republican – I think Trump was the most incompetent, amoral, disgusting person ever to occupy the People’s House. He’s a disgrace. I have a relative in the Secret Service, and though he’s appropriately tight lipped, I can read between the lines in conversation about him – the Secret Service despise him.

    We can whine and complain like the Dems, but to take any steps towards armed revolt will be considered treason and will be prosecuted as such.

    We are all Americans. I suggest we go to our separate corners, collect ourselves, and come out swinging in the political arena – if you take any steps towards coming out swinging, or shooting, outside of the political arena you will find out exactly what Mr. Davis seems to have forgot – the might of the United States military is awe inspiring and fearsome – and the commanders who swore allegiance to defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic will see you as those domestic enemies seeking to overthrow our government – and you will be treated like the traitors you are.

      If you survive the boog you’ll be one of the first inhabitants of the commie lime trench

    • Brian January 14, 2021, 2:02 pm

      Who is Mr. Davis?

  • Irish-7 November 7, 2020, 1:32 am

    I was given an Amazon gift card as a birthday present a few months ago. What better way to spend the money, than to order BOTH survival books? Thanks, Clay! AIRBORNE, Brother!

    So now it comes down to if you want mine bring yers for real. They will be coming. Take the time left and network and work on location. Time to water the tree.

  • Lt Col Mark Mayerstein November 6, 2020, 2:57 pm

    I haven’t read any of Mr. Clay’s books yet, but I really don’t understand this rather obvious demonstration of pure hatred (Frankie Peters and Dubs). You know, Jesus said, “If you hate someone in your heart you’ve already committed murder.” We certainly have some challenges facing us in this most amazing of countries. But Americans are very resilient people and we have always overcome because when it matters we put our differences aside and fight for the common good.

    That said, it seems that Bones, whoever you are, has some kind of misplaced anger concerning White people. Recently we’ve seen a lot of that same kind of anger aimed at White Christian men. It seems that somehow we are responsible for all of the ills of the world and the reason why Blacks, for example, are in the condition they are in here in America. Well, get up off your lazy backsides, get your multi-generational welfare dwelling family members out of the house, and find a job. Any job. Quit selling and using drugs and condemning your children to lives filled with misery, pain, and death. Certainly, all Black people don’t fit this model. There are many decent, hard-working Black folks in this country. But even some of them have found it convenient to blame White Christian males for our challenges.

    I fought in Vietnam and, contrary to urban myth, most of the men and women who died in that war were White. This country was founded by White Christian men. The Revolutionary War that launched this great experiment in Democracy (though technically we are a Republic), was fought by White Christian men and women. This was a common theme up until WWII, which was the first time people of color actually fought in large numbers to preserve what this country stands for. So, stop bashing White Christians. I belong to a few organizations dedicated to exposing the genocidal war being waged against White Christian men. And, in case you haven’t noticed, it’s not Whites or Christians, or Republicans who are pushing for Civil War. It’s the likes of Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, BLM, and Antifa. Republicans aren’t burning down our cities, they are.

    Maybe it would be a good idea for Dubs and Frankie to go and visit Mr. Clay. I suspect they’ll get an ass-whoopin’ they won’t soon forget.

  • Frankie Peters November 6, 2020, 11:52 am

    Hey Bones, make sure you leave us a DNA sample so that we can eventually identify you. Latte drinking tight pants soy boys like you will be first. Now go hide in your mama’s basement and scream at her for another Hot Pocket.

    • Brian January 14, 2021, 1:36 pm

      Don’t insult Hot Pockets like that! I like Hot Pockets.

  • Dubs November 6, 2020, 11:16 am

    Bones if there is a civil war you’ll be in my list first to come visit you coward. Hide behind the meth head junky socialists and crawl back out of the sewer in the hood that you came from disgusting filth.

  • Patriotic Friend November 6, 2020, 10:41 am

    Hey now. I’m glad Clay has put out more information and interesting material to read. His experience is helpful to a lot of folks. Inflammatory comments like Bones makes, and are what drives people to think and plan ahead. We differ in politics and that’s ok as a country/people. But being rude and disrespectful is unnecessary. And in some places, it could get you a heapin helping of knuckle sandwich. Enjoy the weekend, and just for kicks, do something nice for a stranger. Why not??

    • John Boutwell November 6, 2020, 7:28 pm

      You know you are a dumbass but, I sure many have told you that before!

  • Bones November 6, 2020, 9:21 am

    Awesome propaganda!!…. so …maybe we let the rural ,counties of the country secede ! You can start your own country….probably what should have been done in 1861 ! And the good old white boy club of money and power and suppression keeps on trucking..way to evolve deplorables!,

    • Stephen November 6, 2020, 9:57 am

      Bones. Do you believe in God and Jesus ? Where is your compassion for one another. Try looking at the whole picture. I’ll pray for you.

    • Altoids November 6, 2020, 10:17 am
