Passage at Arms is one of the classic novels of military science fiction.

The ongoing war between Humanity and the Ulant is a battle of attrition that Humanity is losing. Humans do, however, have one technological advantage — trans-hyperdrive technology. Using this technology, specially designed and outfitted spaceships — humanity’s climber fleet — can, under very narrow and strenuous conditions, pass through space undetected.

Passage at Arms tells the intimate, detailed and harrowing story of a climber crew and its captain during a critical juncture of the war. Cook combines speculative technology with a canny and realistic portrait of men at war and the stresses they face in combat.

“One of the best evocations of life in close quarters onboard a spaceship... the Das Boot of SF .”
— Jeff VanderMeer, SF Site

“[Passage at Arms] has the impact of an eyewitness account.”
