The ancient, highly advanced alien species that invaded Earth at the height of World War II now faces its ultimate battle.

For the aliens known as the Race, the conflict has yielded dire consequences. Mankind has developed nuclear technology years ahead of schedule, forcing the invaders to accept an uneasy truce with nations that possess the technology to defend themselves. But it is the Americans, with their primitive inventiveness, who discover a way to launch themselves through distant space - and reach the Race’s home planet itself.

As the twentieth century ends, a daring few men and women embark upon a journey no human has made before and humans who arrive in the place called Home, at the centre of a flash point with terrifying potential. For their arrival on the alien home world may drive the enemy to make the ultimate decision - to annihilate an entire planet, rather than allow the human contagion to spread.
