Enhance your purchase
HMS Lion and HMS Unicorn have made it home from their first mission against the alien virus, opening the way for humanity to take the offensive. Now, a major fleet is readying itself to depart into enemy space, intent on smashing the virus' ability to wage war and destroy the threat once and for all. And Captains Hammond and Campbell will take the lead.
But humanity itself is buckling under the strain of endless war. The stresses of fighting are tearing the fleet apart. And a very personal betrayal threatens to plunge the captains and their crews into a bitter feud, deep in alien territory. The stakes could not be higher...and the risk of total defeat has never been so great.

About the author

As a fellow engineer I appreciate his straightforward workmanlike style of writing.
His insights into the contradiction between the Classist toadies who clog up the Admiralty and the Actual Naval warriors who defend the Crown and it's interests is sad but true. I appreciate Chris' realistic portrayal of these realities.
As a student of military history this is no different than any Other nation's Military realities.
In the US military the Intrenched Buearaucracy is if anything worse. The greedy functionaries in the Military establishment up to the Cabinet Level are always at war with the actual Warmakers on the front lines of the Conflict. They frequently cause more battlefield casualties than the enemy does.
The Classist Aristrcracy in England are not alone in their contempt for thier commn people who bleed and die to defend tkeir outrageous and totally undeserved Privilege.
I appreciate Chris' realism and the projection of current practices into the near Future Space Warfare world.
I highly recommend Chris' latest novel and eagerly await his next installment.
I can't wait for the next book in the series! I want to know where the virus came from and how the conflict between the two main lead captains will end.

I felt totally immersed in Fighting for the crown and I can hardly wait for the next book. The characters are readily believable and their fight against an intelligent virus is quite topical in the days of Covid-19
I do like his books and the Ark Royal universe is up there with my favourites.
Looking forward to the next installment.
