Sorry I missed a week there. I see a subscriber took off. That's a shame. I've been trying to update consistently for ten years but this week got the best of me with illness and a lot of work,

Yep. A lucky find in the Naval History museum.
Also, I see what you did there. Wouldn't want it to go unacknowledged.
Thanks for reading and commenting, Steak!

The funny thing is that the first thing that came to my mind seeing that cannon was the Battle of Yonkers.

I'm not familiar with Yonkers. I'll remember to look it up though. Thanks for reading and commenting. It always brightens my day.

It's a big part of the World War Z book in that it's the first major military engagement between the U.S. army and a city-sized zombie horde. It's basically a complete disaster since most modern weapons and tactics are really inefficient at killing zombies; there's a part where tanks are firing armor-piercing rounds into the horde and it does basically nothing since mutilated zombies still keep attacking, which I think was the tie-in with the cannon.

I did end up looking it up and reading a bit about WWZ. Sounds like the book was much better than the film. I think a tank would be pretty impervious to zombie attacks bu5 I suppos3 in WWZ the zombies formed those hive mind shapes...so that could be a problem.

In The Restless Dead a ship's cannon full of screws and bike chains should have the desired effect.
