The book is written by Robert P. Wack, who is a U.S. Army Major and a pediatrician in the Washington, DC area.
The first half of the book adheres fairly closely to the biography of Willem Jacob van Stockum (brother of Hilda van Stockum), who is known to time-travel enthusiasts as the first person to have demonstrated to a broad audience a scientific basis for time travel.
Van Stockum showed how Einstein's equations for his special theory of relativity generate time-like curves and provide a basis for conceptualizing time travel. Van Stockum is the first scientist listed as providing a scientific basis for time travel in David Toomey's synoptic view of the idea of time travel.
Van Stockum was also a bomber pilot in World War II and was shot down over Laval, France during the week after D-Day. The second half of the book explores a "What if?" question about Willem's life. Publicity for this book is being oriented to the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
