Publisher's Summary

The conclusion to the third Ark Royal trilogy!
The Second Interstellar War - pitting humans and their Tadpole allies against an enigmatic alien empire - appears to have stalemated. Neither side can push through to the other's core systems without risking substantial losses, neither side can gain a decisive advantage. But when a brilliant human scientist invents a way to jump across the stars without a gravity tramline, an opportunity arises to strike the enemy in their undefended rear. It is an opportunity that cannot be allowed to pass.
Now, HMS Vanguard and her crew - and the largest fleet ever assembled by the nations of Earth - heads out on a do-or-die mission to challenge their enemies to one final battle...and if they lose, they will never see home again.

His other series are crap but this one is good.

The Ark Royal series is pretty decent military sci-fi. This author should just stick with this series. His other stuff is not good. Very confusing how that can be. Hope he does more Ark Royal books and less of the others.

Also, he uses "grimly" a bit too much....

Great addition to the series- now I want more.

Definitely what I was expecting from Nuttall for this series- loved it. Hoping that the end was setting up a new trilogy...

No more Scottish accents, PLEASE!

A really good story line can be ripped apart by a narrator who tries to do accents that he is clearly incapable of. Much better, just play a neutral part, please please PLEASE, it really is painful!

The usual good stuff from Nuttall

Ralph Lister turns in a great performance once again as the narrator of Nuttall's latest offering. Grand space opera, military sci-fi, call it what you will, it's easy listening as Britain goes out and conquers the universe.
