Tuesday, 29 October 1929. The day that changed the world. Ushered in the Great Depression which would end with World War II.
What if it hadn’t occurred? What if history was changed on that day?
And on other 29 Octobers throughout history?
What if Sir Walter Raleigh wasn’t executed on 29 October 1618?
What if the last test flight of Operation Credible Sport, the planned second Iranian Hostage Mission, hadn’t failed in a crash? And the mission had gone on?
The first Internet message was sent on 29 October 1969. What if it hadn’t been sent? Would the Internet have developed as it has?
The core of each Time Patrol book is that the same day, such as 29 October, is being attacked by a force known only as the Shadow; the same force that destroyed Atlantis in pre-history. They try to change six of those days. If they succeed on all six, our present would be wiped out in a Time Tsunami,
It’s up to the Time Patrol to ensure our history remains the same, no matter the cost.
