The Bestselling author of The Black Company Delivers a classic novel of military science fiction
The ongoing war between Humanity and the Ulant is a battle of attrition that Humanity is losing. Humans do, however, have one technological advantage — trans-hyperdrive technology. Using this technology, specially designed and outfitted spaceships — humanity's climber fleet — can, under very narrow and strenuous conditions, pass through space undetected. Passage at Arms tells the intimate, detailed, and harrowing story of a climber crew and its captain during a critical juncture of the war.
Cook combines speculative technology with a canny and realistic portrait of men at war and the stresses they face in combat. First published in 1985, Passage at Arms is one of the classic novels of military science fiction.
