“Into the Storm”

Taylor Anderson

This is the first book of the “Destroyermen” series.  During World War II an aging destroyer finds itself in an alternate Earth inhabited by intelligent monkey/cat-like creatures  descended from lemurs and their implacable enemy, man-sized warlike reptiles.  This is a “Connecticut Yankee genre” book reminiscent of  the “Lost Regiment” series.  It’s a good read that starts out slow but grows in interest by middle of book.
