The Uplift War is the third Uplift Universe novel, published in 1987. It was nominated for the Nebula in the same year, and won the Hugo in 1988. My understanding is that this novel features an entirely new cast of characters, just as the first two installments. I know the Gubru are a central race to this foray, which we were introduced to in Startide Rising as an avian-like race not friendly towards dolphins or their patron race, man. I’m a bit disappoint this time around to abandon the characters from the previous novel – I had hoped to find out if everyone left had made it back home to Earth safely and just what the hell Herbie is. Looks like questions that will hopefully be answered in time, particularly since there are three more Uplift novels after War. Updates to come.
