A captain and his crew journey out of time and into battle in the first novel in New York Times bestselling author Taylor Anderson's alternate history Destroyermen saga.

Pressed into service when World War 2 breaks out in the Pacific, USS Walker --a Great War-era destroyer--finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, heads Walker into a squall for cover. They emerge somewhere else...

Familiar landmarks appear, but the water teems with vicious, monstrous fish--and there appear to be dinosaurs grazing onshore. Matt and his crew have entered an alternate world...and they are not alone. Humans have not evolved, but two other species have. And they are at war.

Reddy and the crew of the Walker have the power and weaponry capable of turning a primitive war into a genocidal Armageddon. Now they must decide which species they will support, because the side they choose will be victorious...

Captured early World War II battles & US limited combat capability compared to Japan very well
Going to an Earth with no humans evolved at all & slightly different geography in details different. They found sentient lemurs & expansionist reptiles instead.

At first, I didn't think I'd like it, but after reading the first book, I immediately had the read the rest of the series, and enjoyed each book even more than the previous one (at present, 10 books in this series have been published. Wherever the author draws his inspiration from, I hope he keeps this series alive.
