Publisher's Summary

Stuck in an alternate universe during World War II, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy of the U.S.S. Walker has found an unlikely but invaluable ally in Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy. And now they are united in their desire to hunt down the traitor who abducted two women both men would die to protect: Reddy's love, nurse Sandra Tucker, and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. But first they have a new battle to win.

However, this battle will not be fought with broadsides and broadswords, but with cunning and intrigue. For when Reddy and Jenks report the situation to the New Britain Company, they are met with scorn and disbelief. It soon becomes obvious that the ruthless Company is attempting to overthrow the Imperial Throne - and that someone involved knows where Sandra and Rebecca are. From the halls of power to the ballrooms of the nobility, Reddy must navigate through a tempest of politics, deception, and betrayal if he is ever going to save the hostages and live to fight another day.

    "not good for jumping into the series"

    the story and characters are so cryptic that if you don't already now everyone and everything that has preceded this book you will be lost and bored.

    I want to be entertained! I read or listen to five books a week. I love series that allow me to Live in another world with complex characters of every type. Hard core sci fi, fantasy, romance with a good plot, adventure, horror and well written non-fiction. Just don't insult me with poor research that you present as factual. If I give a book four stars its a good read and one I d listen to again--five stars I reserve for one out of a thousand!

    "A Highly Entertaining Series, one of my favorites!"
    Any additional comments?

    Who doesn't love a great series that is imaginative, well written, with wonderful characters and lots of action? i listen or read two or three books a week and am always on the lookout for good, entertaining series. These characters are so vivid that I become totally enveloped in the alternative world. Imaginative entertainment for adults. Well produced and well worth the credits for the series.

    "A classic B western (FUN)"

    Great imaginative story. Taylor has a reservoir of great ideas. It's a very John Wayne western disguised in sic fi, with fun, accurate, technical flourishes. Mr. Dufris is beyond excellent as a narrator. I will be sad to find the ending.

    "Great series, to repetitive"

    I have really enjoyed the Destroyermen series; with its epic battles, fights for survival, nation building. It is a grand story told on a grand scale. However I find myself constantly annoyed at the book. The author is constantly providing character assessments, shedding introspective light, and providing background for thought. Great once maybe twice, but I was perturbed in the first book, livid in the next, flabbergasted in the third, and so on. Maybe if I had read the books a year or so apart I would have appreciated the reminders, but as I read them in succession I was just annoyed.
    Despite this I would recommend the book, it has a great dynamic story told well enough to draw you into the alternate realm.

    "Ex-cell-ant!!!"

    5th in series. Not much I can add. Book 4 left some unresolved plots that Book 5 ties up. New alliances, new enemies and hopefully some new toys. William Dufris' narration is perfect!!! OK where's # 6?

    "Good but not as good."

    I enjoyed all the other books in the series much more than this one. It still ok but a little disappointing.
