4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Read, July 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Mr. Anderson has produced another of his series about World War II era destroyermen transport to an alternate Earth. It is worth the read. He keeps the story line consistent with the previous books in the series, yet manages (as usual) to introduce ingenious plot twists. Mr. Anderson's command of the technology is very good. He introduces enough detail to keep the interest of the historical technology enthusiasts without bogging down the story and plot with too many details. If you like H. Beam Piper, David Weber or John Ringo, you will like Mr. Anderson's works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read!, July 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the best of the series so far. Taylor's grasp of the technical detail and how it is woven into the story is excellent, not just the physical, but the social and organizational detail as well. His understanding of the effects of small details and their propagation on the story line shows a degree of historical and engineering knowledge not seen in the genre since H. Beam Piper. There are a number of interesting technical developments and plot twists in this volume; which are logical from the previous works in the series, but unexpected. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
