AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Towards the end of World War II, the Australian military uncovers an ancient device that has the power to transport people and objects through time. Desperate to keep it safely in Allied hands, they entrust it to Lieutenant Harris, an experienced aviator. But en route to Washington, the arcane nature of the device forces Harris to crash land the plane among numerous shipwrecks from varied historical eras, and to immolate the device to prevent it from causing more damage. Court martialled for insubordination, Harris becomes determined to find out what is really behind these mysterious events.
