Publisher's Summary

Matt Reddy's old Asiatic Fleet destroyer USS Walker has been mysteriously transported to an alternate version of earth. Here, WWII is no longer raging, and Reddy and his crew have been trying to find a new place for themselves in this strange new world.

Now, along with the felinoid Lemurians and Imperial allies, they fight to keep the reptilian Grik, a race growing in supremacy, from reconquering the Lemurians' ancestral home on Madagascar. Reddy and his crew are exhausted, far from reinforcements, and wildly outnumbered. As for the fate of the Americas, Don Hernan and the evil Dominion have gathered to annihilate the forces behind the walls of Fort Defiance as a shadowy power with an agenda all its own rises with chilling resolve.

As the war teeters on a knife-edge, a tipping point may have been reached at last - and cold steel and hot-blooded valor will remain the ultimate weapons.

    "I can't wait another year."

    Loved 10 and can't wait for 11. The best series I've read. If you want to meet a great cast of characters start listening now.

    Story
    "More of the Same - And That's a Good Thing!"

    The alternate world that our heroes have fallen in has now expanded to the full globe. The author is able to bring in different areas of the planet and the groups that live there. I would normally be hoping that the series would end while the author is on top of his game, but each book has the same quality of story telling. That seems like a difficult thing to do, but Anderson does it nonetheless. If one is familiar with the series, the reader may recall that some of the books are links in the chain that fill the gaps in the story. This is one of those types of books in the series that appears to be setting up the next novel. It has plenty of action, but one can tell the next book is going to be special. By the way, in cannot be overstated how great a job the narrator does. William Dufris is a very gifted individual and after ten books, I can tell exactly which character is speaking due to his talented voice. Some reviewers think this ought to be made into a movie, and I'm sure it could be, but the performance that Dufris gives makes any visual movie superfluous. Now it is time to wait for the next book to come out.

    "no resolution."

    Still a well written book. I just wish one of the plot lines would have had some resolution. This was just more plot & mystery building.

    "Great writing and narration make this a big winner"
    If you could sum up Destroyermen: Straits of Hell in three words, what would they be?

    super listening fun


    Any additional comments?

    Throughout the series once I started a new book, I was unable to put it down. This is another one of those. The constant change in the narrators voice brings every character to life. Since I wrote Adjuster Stories, I can appreciate more and more how difficult writing can be. How Mr. Anderson can keep all of the characters ( so many) in the book doing whatever they do is amazing.

    As usual, I was sad when I finished the audio because now it is another year to wait until the next book arrives. May time pass quickly.

    Nothing bad to say about the book or the series other than it takes almost a year to find out what happens next. This is one series that I have fallen in love with, the deepness of the characters the gigantic fictitious world.. the premise of alternate timelines, I LOVE IT! The narrator is EPIC, best choice for this book and series. Can't wait until the next one.

    "I Love This Series"

    I think this is a great book in this series. The author remains focused for much longer on one area of the narrative for much longer in this book. This gives the reader more time to immerse themselves in the narrative.

    I look forward to the next (last?) book.
