Overview

The ongoing war between Humanity and the Ulat is a battle of attrition that humanity is unfortunately losing. However, humans have the advantage of trans-hyperdrive technology, which allows their climber fleet, under very narrow and strenuous conditions, to pass through space almost undetectable. Passage at Arms tells the intimate, detailed and harrowing story of a climber crew and its captain during a critical juncture of the war. Cook combines speculative technology with a canny and realistic portrait of men at war and the stresses they face in combat. Passage at Arms is one of the classic novels of military science fiction.

This is a newer e-book release of an older book written by the author in 1985. It is a space opera that is loosely modeled after WWII-era submarine warfare, complete with "down the throat" torpedo (missile) shots and depth charge attacks (enemy missiles). The story is one long buildup of suspense leading to an anticlimactic finish. Loose ends are simply cut off, rather than tying them neatly, making the ending somewhat ragged.
