    Three time-traveling historians are visiting World War II England: Michael Davies, intent on observing heroism during the Miracle of Dunkirk; Merope Ward, studying children evacuated from London; and Polly Churchill, posing as a shopgirl in the middle of the Blitz. But when the three become unexpectedly trapped in 1940, they struggle not only to find their way home but to survive as Hitler's bombers attempt to pummel London into submission.

    Story


    The reviewer who said the characters' self recriminations about whether their actions changed history hit it dead on. I found myself angry with the characters because they couldn't just get on with it.

    *** slight possible spoilers ahead ***

    The ideas the characters had about time travel and affecting outcome were ridiculous. I don't want to rant about the details here but I found myself wanting to go online somewhere to rant about it and get it out of my system instead of yelling at my car stereo.

    Doomsday Book I enjoyed, but Blackout and All Clear, though they had the potential to be great were brought down by the tediousness of the characters thoughts. Did I have to sit through five minutes of one character wondering why another was late? Or assuming that because the all-clear sounded too early that meant the war was lost?
