I read this in grade school and cannot remember the name. The book I read was part of a series because I remember wanting to continue it, but could never find the proceeding books.
The story was about a military team that was trained to use large "battle suits" in a post-nuclear America. The story revolved around the leader of this team and his wife/girlfriend who were separated prior to the attack. I also remember the premise was the Soviet Union launched a surprise attack on the U.S. The rest of the story I can recall is just bits and pieces.
Has anyone ever read anything like this, and can you recall the name of the series?
Edit: Couple details I can remember:
- The battle suits apparantly roll because I remember them "rolling" across a desert of dusty area.
- The wife/girlfriend upon seeing a mushroom cloud from her stopped car on the interstate is immediately attacked by a stranger that is also watching the mushroom cloud. She was apparantly trained in self-defense by her military husband/boyfriend.
I will edit if I remember more.
