Gears of War: Judgment: Kilo Squad: The Survivor's Log is a Gears of War guidebook. The book mainly focuses on the Gears of War: Judgment timeline and the events that unfolded in the game. It was featured at the 2013 New York Comic Con.
Written as a collection of notes in Damon Baird’s journal, The Survivor’s Log expands on declassified testimony and other facets of the game and serves as an in-universe artifact within the timeline of the series. This firsthand account chronicles the soldier’s experience in a riveting and beautifully illustrated oral history — the events he witnessed and the deterioration of COG society, his decision to take his unit rogue, and stories from the other members of his cohort. Divided into sections on COG society, Kilo Squad, and E-Day, the book underscores the perseverance of Baird and Kilo Squad and highlights key details on Locust forces. The Survivor’s Log is a genuine treat for fans of the game that USA Today heralded as “an intense prequel,” as well as “an exhilarating expansion and another worthwhile reason to rev up the chainsaws.”
The author Rob Auten described the book as being sort of a scrapbook, Pinterest for Gears of War.
