Publisher's Summary

The impossible has spawned the unthinkable. In 2021, a quantum military experiment goes horrifically wrong. A multinational taskforce of ultramodern warships is suddenly transported back in time to 1942...right into the path of the US naval battle group bound for Midway Atoll.
History is rewritten in an instant as the future smashes into the past, and high-tech hardware goes head to head with World War Two technology. In the chaos that ensues, thousands are killed, but the maelstrom has only just begun. The veterans of Pearl Harbor have never seen a helicopter or a cruise missile - let alone nanotechnology, ceramic bullets, and F22 Raptor stealth jetfighters.
Allied and Axis forces are then caught in a desperate struggle to gain the upper hand - each hoping to tip the balance with a fist full of 21st-century firepower. What happens next is anybody's guess - and everybody's nightmare.

What a dreadful narrator!!!

I've been waiting for years for these books to come on the audio market, the story is a real boys own adventure, but why have they got this narrator, when he's doing an American character it's ok but when he try's a female one
It's laughable, a female British voice is dreadful, a female Australian voice OMG talk about Dick Van Dyke in Mary poppins.
It's a real shame they've really missed a trick here.
I still bought the trilogy through as I love JB's work.

Good book spoiled by narrator

I've not taken much notice of reviews to date but oh do I wish I had. Good story but shocking narration. The female characters are poor, as are British and Australian accents - so poor that the book is unlistenable - apologies to author but it just doesn't work

Great story, wierd accents

loved the story and will be getting the 2nd book directly. The general naration was great and read in a strong easy to listen to voice. The only thing that let the recording down was the accents. In particular the supposedly Australian and British voices, they are so bad as to be funny in what apart from an underlying cheekyness is not supposed to be a comedic novel. Would still thourougly recommend both the story and recording

Some awful accents detract from the story

Most of the time, the narrator is pretty good, but some of his accents are awful. I know the Australian accent can be tough for some people, with an Australian author you are going to have a lot of Australian listeners and I found it painful to listen to. I eventually almost got used to it, but it detracted from what is a great story.
