"A callous mogul tries his hand at politics and uses his undue influence to get a former governor elected president ... The novel has a frank tone and a clear style that feels comfortably old-fashioned...A solid story of political warfare made doubly compelling by the dubious hero leading the charge."

An inept physics professsor travels back to December 1941 in his time machine. He seeks to become a national hero by destroying the Japanese fleet which attacked Pearl Harbor. He succeeds only to be sentenced to death by a U.S. Navy Courtmartial for mistakenly sinking the Japanese vessels prior to their attack. Thanks to the vagaries of time travel, he escapes and returns home greatly improved.
