Overview

The Uplift War (Uplift Series #3) by David Brin

David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written.  Sundiver, Startide Rising, and The Uplift War—a New York Times bestseller—together make up one of the most beloved sagas of all time.  Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race.  But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind?

As galactic armadas clash in quest of the ancient fleet of the Progenitors, a brutal alien race seizes the dying planet of Garth.  The various uplifted inhabitants of Garth must battle their overlords or face ultimate extinction.  At stake is the existence of Terran society and Earth, and the fate of the entire Five Galaxies.  Sweeping, brilliantly crafted, inventive and dramatic, The Uplift War is an unforgettable story of adventure and wonder from one of today's science fiction greats.

This story is a very entertaining tale of war with aliens but not on Earth. It is directly related to Startide Rising because it is events in that story which cause this one. However it is not necessary to have read SR to understand this one because these characters have very limited knowledge about the cause of their troubles. They only know the pesky dolphins started the ruckus. Brin has created a universe of deliberate genetic engineering where alien races create other intelligent species. Humans are doing this with dolphins and chimpanzees in this universe and fishy monkey business with bird brains ensues. The birdlike aliens Brin has created are more interesting than what most writers have done and he gives a guite detailed explication of the invaders culture. It reminds one of the Amok Time episode of the original Star Trek created by Theodore Sturgeon. Highly recommended!
