THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF READY PLAYER ONE It's just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He's daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom—if he can make it that long without getting suspended again. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer. At first, Zack thinks he's going crazy. A minute later, he's sure of it. Because the UFO he's staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a hugely popular online flight simulator calledArmada—in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders. But what Zack's seeing is all too real. And his skills—as well as those of millions of gamers across the world—are going to be needed to save the earth from what's about to befall it. Yet even as he and his new comrades scramble to prepare for the alien onslaught, Zack can't help thinking of all the science-fiction books, TV shows, and movies he grew up reading and watching, and wonder: Doesn't something about this scenario seem a little too… familiar? Armada is at once a rollicking, surprising thriller, a classic coming of age adventure, and an alien-invasion tale like nothing you've ever read before—one whose every page is infused with author Ernest Cline's trademark pop-culture savvy.

The Spanish Aramda is a radical interpretation of why Philip II's Armada of 1588 failed so disastrously. This new edition is based on a fresh examination of archival sources across Europe, combined with the archaeological investigation of some of its wrecked ships off the coasts of Scotland and Ireland. The new edition has been extensively revised to incorporate ten further years of research by the authors and others, and is likely to remain the standard account for years to come.

"The Armada campaign pitted Europe's mightiest military power against Christendom's most powerful navy in a battle for different ideals of civilisation. Both protagonists expected the clash to be decisive; neither, as it soon became apparent, knew how to fight a battle whose scale and character were beyond the experience of anyone in the two fleets. What ensued was not the heroic encounter of legend, but an inconclusive affair, redeemed - for England - by atrocious weather and poor Spanish understanding of the coastlines of western Scotland and Ireland."--BOOK JACKET.

SPRING 1944: THE ALLIES STAND POISED TO LAUNCH THE GREATEST SEABORNE INVASION THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN. BUT HITLER'S NAVY IS ABOUT TO UNLEASH A DEVASTATING NEW WEAPON THAT COULD SEND THE ALLIED FLEET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. Battle-worn and battle-tested, Lt. Jordan Cole seethes with anger toward Lt. Commander Michael Edland, the man he holds responsible for the deaths of many of his men. Now thousands of more lives are at stake as the German navy has unleashed a new menace on the high seas. Blazing across waves at unmatched speeds, the "Sea Eagles" carry the firepower of far larger warships. Commanded by Richard Reubold, a former flyer and fearsome leader who struggles with demons all his own, the shadowy S-boats imperil the crucial Allied assault. As the clock ticks inexorably toward D-Day, Cole and Edland must put aside their rancor and carry out a daring strategy before the Allied invasion force is smashed and Europe is crushed beneath the heels of the Nazi jackboot. "Chilling and compelling. . .will keep you up all night." --John J. Gobbell, author of A Call to Colors
