Three time-traveling historians go to World War II England, where they discover discrepancies in the historical record which indicate that, contrary to time-travel theory, one or all of them may have affected the past and changed the war's outcome.

Spanish Pubs Llc
Traveling back in time, from Oxford circa 2060 into the thick of World War II, was a routine excursion for three British historians eager to study firsthand the heroism and horrors of the Dunkirk evacuation and the London Blitz. But getting marooned in war-torn 1940 England has turned Michael Davies, Merope Ward, and Polly Churchill from temporal tourists into besieged citizens struggling to survive Hitler's devastating onslaught. And now there's more to worry about than just getting back home: The impossibility of altering past events has always been a core belief of time-travel theory—but it may be tragically wrong. When discrepancies in the historical record begin cropping up, it suggests that one or all of the future visitors have somehow changed the past—and, ultimately, the outcome of the war. Meanwhile, in 2060 Oxford, the stranded historians' supervisor, Mr. Dunworthy, frantically confronts the seemingly impossible task of rescuing his students—three missing needles in the haystack of history. The thrilling time-tripping adventure that began with Blackout now hurtles to its stunning resolution in All Clear.
Viajar en el tiempo, de Oxford circa 2060 a la Segunda Guerra Mundial, fue una excursion de rutina para tres historiadores britanicos deseosos de estudiar de primera mano el heroismo y los horrores de la evacuacion de Dunkerque y el bombardeo de Londres. Pero al quedar varados en la guerra en 1940, tienen que luchar por sobrevivir al devastador ataque de Hitler. Cuando las discrepancias en los registros historicos comienzan a aparecer, sugieren que uno o todos los visitantes del futuro, de alguna manera, cambien el pasado y, en ultima instancia, el resultado de la guerra.
