The Destroyermen series is a series of alternate history books, written by American writer and historian Taylor Anderson. The story and the characters: It’s all rather tricky, and the captain must maintain a balance of meeting all those various needs while falling in love himself with one of a tiny handful of female navy nurses who were on his destroyer at the time it crossed over.

There are no explicit sexual descriptions to speak of. So I enjoyed it. The series seems clearly influenced by a series published in the s by William R. The fifth novel in the series was released in February If that concept sounds silly to you, then I’ve just told you everything you need to know.

The Americans agree that they are going to have to drag the Lemurians into the modern age. I will mention here that the people our heroes will meet are very original, very fleshed out, with their destroyernen, social structure, interactions, mythology, wants, needs etc. I don’t know yet whether or not I’ll read “Crusade”.


On the way you’ll have a great time. This page was last edited on 22 Octoberat Third book in the series that was released in February No drstroyermen Japanese Battleships firing on them. There’s a lot of potential here, destrooyermen while I’m not sure it can sustain eight books which is where the series stands todayI’m more than willing to go along for the ride and see how long the fun lasts.

Who wants to read a military sci-fi novel about a World War II navy ship being sent into another dimension? Taylor Anderson blends seemingly complex scientific theories and paleontology with basic engineering problems and supply issues in a world that’s not quite our own; as well as the war View all 3 comments.

Because whoever they choose to side with is the winner. This is ingenious from the author’s part since it makes the reader to actually care when the ship’s paint is scratched.

Anderson has some quirks as a writer, intl as an over-reliance on ellipses, and it’s not great literature, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ignoring the whole transition thing, the book was pretty fun if a bit predictable. Silva a destroyerman in all respectsthe novel is filled with amazing characters, all flawed, all troubled, all loyal and all amazing.


Can they afford to remain neutral? Ah, but how things change when they come out of the squall. One, the Lemurians, evolved giant lemurs from Madagascarwho are peaceful farmers and fishermen, and live on huge oceangoing houseboats called Homes.

So this is a fun premise and a good storyteller can sell it and make it sstorm.

Destroyermen – Wikipedia

This was an intriguing surprise. To add to their morale problems, they discover that there are peoples in these islands, just not Homo Sapiens style restroyermen. Enroute, the Americans and the Lemurians discuss privately what they know—and think they know—about the other species. As sea-fairing military thrillers go, this a solid read.

An interesting possibility of course, and filled with potential.

The crew was not as respectful as we would want from our sailors and marines now, and their roles tended to be narrow and sometimes trivialized.

Instead they evolved into an intelligence that threatens to destroy the other intelligent race of the planet, stirm Lemur like Lemurians. The novel begins on an old American “four-stacker” destroyer in the middle of a naval battle somewhere in the Indonesian archipelago.

They must decide whose side they’re on. It was not horrible, destroyermej was just OK.
