Many stories feature a ship from the future (usually our time period) going back in time to WWII. The crew then struggles with how their decisions will change the future. In this book, a pair of U.S. destroyers slips through a vortex to another earth. Now their choices will impact the future of two races. This is the first novel by Taylor Anderson. From official release/information:
From back of book: Pressed into service when WW II breaks out in the Pacific, USS Walker a Great War--vintage "four-staker" destroyer--finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. It's captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover, but emerges somewhwere else....
Familiar landmarks appear, but the water teems with vicious, monstrous fish. And there appear to be dinosaurs grazing on the plains of Bali. Gradually Matt and his crew must accept the fact that they are in an alternate world--and they are not alone. Humans have not evolved, but two other species have. ANd they are at war.
