Before George Lucas’ Death Star and before Star Trek’s Doomsday Machine came the Berserkers, intelligent, space-faring killing machines whose sole purpose is to destroy all life. The Berserkers have developed a new trick: Berserker units that can pass for human-created androids. They’re gambling on the advantage this gives them and massing for an all-out attack on human-held space.

But the humans have developed a trick of their own. They’ve cracked the Berserkers’ basic codes and know what their battle plans are. Both sides are betting everything they have. For one of them, it will be the beginning of the end.

    " It an Okay book. It STRONGLY resembles WWII's Battle of Midway. I'm more interested in the individual story of the two main protagonists. Enh I fizzled out half way though. I had too much in my life and wasn't a gripping tale enough. "
