The book that started it all for Prepper Press!
Holding Your Ground is an instructional guide and planning tool that addresses defensive preparation of a location. If the government can no longer protect your apartment, house, or farm, Holding will teach you how. Holding covers virtually every aspect of protecting you and your family in the event society breaks down. Many people have preparations for food, water, shelter and personal defense. Holding will teach you how to configure your home, train your team, and properly equip any location for defense. Covering topics ranging from hiding in plain sight to pre-positioning of supplies, Holding uses common sense, military tactics and historical examples that allow you to prepare for defense without affecting your property’s value or appearance.
"My husband and I are preparing..... preparing for a natural disaster, or other "event." We literally read this book from cover-to-cover and took notes the whole way through. Who knew there are inexpensive, practical, uncomplicated ways to protect your home/emergency supplies from looters? My husband and I both have read several book about emergency supplies, food storage, etc. But, this book is vital in that it details how to protect those very supplies! Each of us came away so many no-nonsense ways to protect our home. As I drive into our driveway, I have a new outlook on our property.....would a looter be able to hear our generator from here? Would our mowed lawn indicate presence of a well fed, warm family behind our front door? This book details how to disguise/protect and generally defend the preparations you have made. There are details for urban and rural etc. so everyone benefits from the concepts and practical advice. Certainly the discussions of weapons/ammo etc. are worth a positive review according to my husband. I have to admit...I left that for him to absorb, and as a wife, I focused on the matter-of-fact ways to discourage looters and home invasions. This book has changed my way of thinking about what to do after my emergency checklist has been completed. You will write in the margins of this book!"
