When The Fires Burn

A UK prepping site researching, discussing and planning for the world this may become when the lights go out, chaos reigns.... and the fires burn.



Reviews of all things prepping.  Books, DVDs, everyday carry (EDC) gear, tools, torches and so on.  I will mostly be posting my own reviews as and when I get something new and consider it worthy of more than a link via Twitter but if I see a decent web or video review I’ll post it here as well.  Any review will be of something I have paid for myself or otherwise legitimately obtained. I have no connection to any manufacturer or supplier (I’m not that important!) so you will only get my unbiased opinions, so comment away if you disagree or have had a different experience.

Book Review: Last Light
