9781400108060: Destroyermen: Into the Storm (Bk. 1)

Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the U.S.S. Walker—a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer—finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover—and emerges somewhere else. Familiar landmarks appear, but the water teems with monstrous, vicious fish. And there appear to be dinosaurs grazing on the plains of Bali. Gradually Matt and his crew must accept the fact that they are in an alternate world—and they are not alone. Humans have not evolved, but two other species have. And they are at war. With its steam power and weaponry, the Walker's very existence could alter the balance of power. And for Matt and his crew, who have the means to turn a primitive war into a genocidal Armageddon, one thing becomes clear: They must decide whose side they're on. Because whoever they choose to side with is the winner.

From AudioFile:

During the heat of battle with the Japanese in WWII, the U.S.S. WALKER sails into a raging typhoon in an attempt to elude the enemy. After a disturbing ride through a weightless sea, the ship emerges into a calm that belies reality. William Dufris plunges headlong into this improbable adventure, finding himself called upon to create voices for characters of several nationalities, as well as pseudohuman creatures. His enthusiasm allows the audio to enhance the already-fine story. While essentially a science fiction tale, the text also contains numerous bons mots, both subtle and overt, and Dufris's comic timing delivers them perfectly. This production sticks with the listener for a surprisingly long time. R.L.L. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
