* ShownTheirWork: Anderson neglects ''nothing'' when it comes to keeping a ''Wickes''-class tin can running. Food, fuel, ammunition, lubricants, spare parts, glass, uniforms, paper, and the infrastructure to supply them are all addressed. Chief Gray's first concern after they cross over, which is both well-justified and fully explained, is a lack of ''paint''.
** The [[NegativeSpaceWedgie strange]] [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds void-place-thing]] within the squall is described as a strange vacuum in which water droplets are suspended in place. When ''Walker'' reaches it, Reddy briefly hears/feels the engines screaming as the screws (which are no longer submerged) run away. Spanky also catches it and quickly stops the engines, preventing catastrophic damage.

** The attack on the fleet by [[spoiler: the French submarine ''Surcouf'']], which was in our history controlled by the [[spoiler: Free French]] but appears to be under the control of the [[spoiler: Vichy France]] further supports Courtney's theory. This is confirmed in ''Straits of Hell'', which reveals that [[spoiler:''Surcouf'' comes from a universe where much of Europe became fascist as a reaction to Bolshevism (which was quickly wiped out) and where Germany, France, Italy, and Spain united to conquer the Americans, the British, the Russians, and the Chinese. A large fleet sent to conquer British Egypt in 1939 crossed over into the other universe and has since established a new faction, the [[BiggerBad League of Tripoli]], in the Mediterranean region.]]

* WeirdWeather: There's a rare green storm that picks up any vessel that drives into it and deposits them in a parallel world. ''Walker'' and ''Mahan'' ran into one while trying to escape the ''Amagi''. [[spoiler: It's summoned by the presence of large masses of metal on the sea.]]

** The [[spoiler: Holy Dominion]] stages a surprise attack at dawn on the capital of [[spoiler: the Empire of New Britain]], timed with a public duel and a simultaneous sneak attack on [[spoiler: the Governor-Emperor]]. Naturally, both Matthew Reddy and [[spoiler: Harvey Jenks]] are GenreSavvy enough to know something like this is coming and take precautions (like sending out a plane to scout out the surrounding area).

* HistoricalInJoke: When the ''Walker'' faces off against the ''Hidoiame'', the former tries to bluff the latter by identifying herself as a cruiser (which fails). At pretty much the same time as ''Walker''. ''Mahan'', ''Pope'', and the two Royal Navy vessels were battling the ''Amagi'' during the Battle of the Java Sea, one of their Clemson-class cousins, the [=USS=] ''Edsall'', was taking on multiple [=IJN=] surface vessels south of the island of Java, having been misidentified as a ''Marblehead''-class cruiser (The [=USS=] ''Marblehead'' is an Omaha-class light cruiser).

* ImperialJapan:
** They're prominent in the opening of ''Into The Storm''.
** [[spoiler: HIJMS ''Amagi'' makes an appearance, captained by [[AxCrazy Hisashi Kurokawa.]]]]
** In ''Firestorm'', [[spoiler:a modern (by the book's timeline) Japanese destroyer also crosses over with a crew ready to kill and [[IAmAHumanitarian eat]] their Allied prisoners]].
