From the Publisher

“Taylor Anderson has brought a fresh new perspective to the tale of crosstime shipwreck.”—S.M. Stirling, author of The Lord of Mountains

“Taylor Anderson and his patched-up four-stackers have steamed to the forefront of alternative history. All aboard for a cracking great read!”—E. E. Knight, author of March in Country

“Taylor Anderson is one of the best at military science fiction as his plots combine cerebral thought-provoking issues within a great adventure tale; the alternate realm of the Destroyermen saga is worth the journey.”—Alternative Worlds

    The Destroyermen series always provides non-stop military action

    In 1942 three combat vessels fell from this world into another realm. The two American destroyers and their enemy Japanese battle cruiser found an odd world. The dinosaur-like Grik are ethnically cleaning the feline-like Lemurians. The Japanese join the Grik side while USS Walker Commander Matthew Reddy unites his crew, those of the American frigate the USS Donaghey, the Lemurians and the human Empire of the New Britain Isles.

    However, another human empire, the Holy Dominion has a different plan to eradicate the two sentient non human species and the otherworldly humans while subjecting their rival Empire of the New Britain Isles. Matthew, leading the ally military forces against the Grik-Japanese alliance, worries that his side faces a two front war while more Japanese ships come through the Squall from earth with ruthlessness as the only rule of engagement because they believe in victory at all costs.

    The Destroyermen series (see Distant Thunders and Rising Tides) always provides non-stop military action with the latest entry not only living up to its predecessors but complicating the playing field. The story line is fast-paced from the onset and never slows down as Matthew uses all types of battle tactics to compensate for the Japanese superior ships and amoral disdain for collateral damage. Part of his plan is to take the fight to the Spanish conquistador Old Dominion on land and at sea but must also deal with the Japanese and the diabolically clever Grik. Although only Matthew stands out in a cast that would make Cecil B DeMille proud, fans will enjoy World War II.

    Very Good Read

    I was looking forward to this as I have read the previous five books in the series. I was not disappointed. As with most books, there were a few slow spots, but all in all a good read.

    I am waiting for Number 7 to come out.

    Awesome

    I really love books like this series. Not sense ""the lost regiment" have i been hooked on a book series waiting impatiently for the next book in the series to be published. There are some inaccuracies about the ships, damage control etc but all in all i would tell anyone to get the previous 5 books as well as the 6"th one out now. I am chomping at the bit about when or if ? A 7th book is gonna be in the works and how soon will it be avail if so.

    Get this whole series for a good read
