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

    Story
    "Worst. Narrator. Ever."

    Purrlease, Audible! Why would anyone who had ever heard an English accent, or an Australian accent, or a woman's voice, contract Mr Snyder to read this apparently interesting book? Seriously, I truly believe I could have done a better job myself. Since when did Britain's royalty speak in Estuary English?
    This will be the first book I've ever tried to return as unlistenable. Truly atrocious!

    "Good time travel book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Weapons of Choice to be better than the print version?

    I have all three of the audio books in this series and got through the them in 1 week.Te way the story develops is well paced and you get a good feel for the story. The way the groups in the books play off against each other is well thought out and the action is exciting. The way the futuristic weapons are used and historical characters portrayed is believable.
