While anything that has to do with Zombie Apocalypse will forever be fiction to me, I think the military has a lot of resources that can be used to put an end to the zombie outbreak. If zombies are exactly like how they are being portrayed in movies, video games, books, then I think there is no need to doubt the capacity of the military to deal with them. The military is equipped with different models of machine guns. This alone can stop a zombie apocalypse.
If you have watched any zombie movie, they don't usually move very slow whenever they are in a group, especially when they are targeting prey. Machine guns will be useful because they can release hundreds of bullets in a minute. The military also has access to mines. This alone can kill hundreds of zombies at a time. While human beings are intelligent enough to detect a minefield, zombies are not that intelligent.
"Night of the Living Dead" was a book that introduced zombies to the mainstream. It was actually an offshootof the book "I am Legend" which was more about vampires. The book "Night of the Living Dead" was written by George Romero who not only wrote the best selling book, he wrote the movie as well.
One has to wonder how Romero came up with the concept other than being inspired by "I am Legend". And, one has to wonder how "I am Legend" came to be too. Regardless of what went on in the minds of the authors of the two books, the concept was a huge hit. Television show,s movies, books, and vidoe games are about zombies and are very popular.
