Publisher's Summary

The ongoing war between humanity and the Ulat is a battle of attrition that humanity is unfortunately losing. However, humans have the advantage of trans-hyperdrive technology, which allows their climber fleet, under very narrow and strenuous conditions, to pass through space almost undetectable. 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. Passage at Arms is one of the classic novels of military science fiction.

One Long Running Space Battle ….

If you love Military Science Fiction, you will love this book. It is 10 hours of a battle as told by a war correspondent. One ship, and one patrol, with one battle. It is tense, exiting, and exhausting.

There is only one thing I would change to transform this book from "great" and absolutely a fun read, to an "award winning" book. But it would be a spoiler, so I will let you read it and guess what I am thinking.

This read like the Battle of Midway or the Battle of Britain from WWII. Back and forth, trying new things, sneaking up on the enemy, being surprised, inflicting damage and taking damage.

When I found out it was a book about one battle, I was not sure about it myself, but Audible's fantastic return policy encouraged me to use a credit. I am very glad I did!

I keep coming back to this story

I've read/listened to this so many times. it goes between plot and character development but tells a moving narrative of a wartime mission.
