Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone novel set in the Ark Royal Universe!
The first major alien offensive against Earth has been blunted, winning humanity time to deploy new weapons and prepare new tactics as Earth's space navies prepare to take the offensive. But the enigmatic aliens have plans of their own - a full-scale attack on Earth that will either win the war in a single stroke or lose it.
The stakes have never been so high. The fate of humanity itself is in the balance. And, as battle rages across the solar system, as humanity finds its back pushed firmly against the wall, millions of people - military and civilian - struggle for survival, knowing that victory will come with a very high price....
And defeat will be the end of everything humanity holds dear.

Good background to the chain

Whilst the Ark Royal series have been, on the whole, a good story arc. This background filler doesn’t really add much other than a bit of clarification.

Now we know

What made the experience of listening to The Longest Day the most enjoyable?

A part from the well written and well spoken story it fills in a part of the story I always wondered about.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Longest Day?

Must be the effects of the tidal wave

What about Ralph Lister’s performance did you like?

It is listenable
His voice keeps you engaged

Any additional comments?

This is a fill in, loose ends story.
It has completed the whole story for me.
