    Soldiers of the Ukranian Armed Forces and firefighters inspect bodies of recently deceased individuals and dead zombies following the nerve gas attacks. The Ukranian government ordered the deployment of its vast amount of Cold War chemical weapons to separate the infected from the non-infected, as those infected with the Solanum virus would reanimate after death if the brain was not destroyed by trauma.

    Serbian army patrol in Southern part of Serbia ( the book don't make any references to Serbia but we can guess that this country was plunged into chaos, civil war and ethnic tensions although hit by Zeks) (Python II/IMFBD).

    A scene of mobilized Indonesian militias armed with the 'bambu runcing' (spiked bamboo spear) before the offensive on infested areas in Jambi, Sumatra. Due to the shortage of professional military forces after the fall of much of its western regions, Indonesia resorted to recruit regular civilians to help clearing its lands in parts of the country. The limited ownership of firearms means, these militias often fought with only melee weapons, sometimes self-made, such as the bambu runcing, machetes, or knives.

    Members of the Singapore Police Force were patrolling the streets after weird cases were reported in hospitals throughout the city-state. This photo is taken some time before the Great Panic started in Southeast Asia.

    A rare pre-war photo showed members of Kuwait Police enganging in a discussion during their investigation of weird reports from a hospital in Kuwait City, Kuwait. Cases such as 'dead bodies rising from their beds' and other odd reports were later dismissed for African Rabies after the major outbreak in Cape Town.

    A pre-war photo of Krak des Chevaliers (Hosn al-Akrad), an abandoned Crusader castle in the Levant. During the course of the war, as many Middle Eastern governments fell to the Great Panic, some factions throughout the region managed to set themselves up in a few Crusader-era castles and fortresses like Krak des Chevaliers and survived the following chaos. With post-war Middle East is largely empty and chaotic, it's not uncommon for these survivor groups to later rule their respective areas as warlord states.

    Post-war anti-zombie clearing operations in Finland, a white-zone and one of the worst affected areas of Scandinavia during World War Z. Remnants of the Finnish Armed Forces and the United Nations Peacekeeping Forces have reclaimed 70% of the country as of 2023.

    BOOBY TRAPS
    During World War Z, several booby traps were deliberately set-up by survivors defending makeshift holdouts while others were left-behind as people retreated to the countryside. Many of these traps would be rediscovered years later and while it did help by killing or disabling some zombies, it eventually caused some unnecessary casualties.​

    An unearthed landmine discovered somewhere in New Mexico. Landmines were often a problem as they tend to leave crawler zombies behind as mines were meant to disable human targets rather than the undead. There are an estimate of 1,000-3,000 landmines scatterred throughout the United States following the government's retreat to the rockies and are in the process of being disposed.

    Conwy, Wales, UK. A textbook case of an ancient medieval town that survived the Z War mostly intact.

    Even before the Great Panic hit the town's population had begun to swell and the town Mayor Cedric Jones took steps to limit the population forcing visitors to find places outside the Walls. At the time many complained this would hurt business but as the crisis developed Jones took more executive control from the Council. As the Great Panic swept in Jones had the town walls fortified and the various gaps filled. A plan to re-floor and re-roof Conwy Castle was started and Jones sourced explosives to sever the road and rail bridges from Llandudno Junction. A plea from the local population saw Telford's suspension Bridge heavily fortified instead of demolished. Locals where called up into a militia and non-locals where forcibly removed from the town unless they had relatives in town or skills useful to the situation. Gardens where turned to cultivation and boats where sent to fish- the crews armed with clubs, or basic firearms.

    The first appearances of the Infected and the Battle of Gyffin put paid to the criticism Jones was facing and the locals rallied around the Mayor. The Bridges where blown and the rail access under Mount Pleasant was filled with concrete. All approaches from other directions were heavily defended with outlying outposts established to watch for the Horde. Months of defending the town turned to years. Several major battles took place esp after Conwy, like Caernarfon became one of the UK's Fortified Survival Zones. Unlike Harlech which fell due to internal food politics Conwy was able to be resupplied by the Royal Navy and survived.

    At the end of WWZ Conwy like the other surviving UK Fortified Survival Zones (Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Ludlow, Tintagel, Dover etc) became 'Royal' towns proudly adding the title to its name as well as a Lordship for Cedric Jones, and Knighthoods for many of the towns inhabitants.

    A photo taken during the war showed a pinisi, a traditional Indonesian two-masted sailing ship with members of the Indonesian military aboard during the zombie clearing efforts at the Indonesian safe zones of the Moluccas. Traditionally built and used mainly by the Bugis and Makassar tribes of Sulawesi, this vessel later becomes the main wartime transportation between the islands of Indonesia due to the shortage of fossil fuels as the main producing regions in Sumatra, Java, and Borneo were overrun, and international trade came to a halt.

    After the reclamation of the country, the traditional pinisi ships are still being mass-produced and used by the population for transportation purposes; while there have been some efforts in the Indonesian Armed Forces to modify the vessels into later use in the navy due to the relatively fossil fuels-independent nature of the ships, as the post-war world is still trying to recover from energy crisis.

    A rare wartime photo showed members of the Holy Russian Empire Armed Forces with Soviet-style uniform and old weapons believed to be taken during the offensive at the Urals, just outside Yekaterinburg.

    A zombie hunter clad in chainmail posing with an M60 machine gun. It is believed this was only used for propaganda and morale purposes as fighting zombies with this outfit and loadout is considered impractical.

    An Italian soldier clad in armor mows down a horde of zombies using a vintage MG-08 machine gun. Despite the impracticality of such, it was part of the Italian Armed Forces' morale booster to imitate the Arditi of World War I in the fight against the Infected. (Courtesy: Battlefield 1)
