But finding the cause is only half the problem...he must prevent it.

'Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.' Winston Churchill
History is made by ordinary people doing extraordinary things. The fact that often time’s history doesn’t record the heroics of these people doesn’t alter that. The missions on 6 June range from:
1944 A.D.: Parachuting in behind the beaches of Normandy and linking up with the Resistance to insure the last ‘good war’ ends the way history records.
478 B.C.: At the Pythian Games in Greece in 478A.D., where art and war merge.
452 A.D.: A monster’s lair in 452 A.D. where a man becomes the legend of Beowulf.
1843 A.D: At West Point, where a middling cadet, small in stature, named Ulysses S. Grant is trying to survive and graduate, with his curious brain that mixes war and art.
1998 A.D.: In a secret nuclear weapons depot in Pakistan, where the saber-rattling of nuclear tests is getting ready to escalate into Armageddon; a war to end all wars.
And, strangest of all, a mission thousands of years into pre-history, to the day Art is born.
While history doesn’t record the heroics by the ordinary, there are those who do notice. And there are those who want to stop those ordinary people and change our history in order to create a time tsunami and wipe our present out of existence.
It is up to the Time Patrol to send an agent back to six different years on the 6th of June and make sure that doesn’t happen!

Book 1 of The Time Corps Chronicles
The Time Corps Chronicles is a fantasy series that moves from worlds much like our own to those where the mythical is real and the impossible is true. Clockworks, ancient spirits, time machines, talking animals and other things both beautiful and strange wait for the travelers daring enough to find them. But moving between worlds comes at a price.
Medical student Felicia Sanchez is only trying to help an injured man when she slips through a time rip and into 19th century New Orleans, one very different than the one she knows from history books.
The only person who can get her home is Professor Seamus Connor, a former convict seeking a quiet life of obscurity. But even the “mad Irishman” knows that recreating a freak accident is next to impossible.
With the help of a local street urchin, they discover that their problems run deeper than solely getting Felicia back to her own time. The three of them must unravel the secrets of a steam engine that operates upon a scientific impossibility and the mysteries of a grand cathedral at the center of town, where clockwork automatons perform for rapt audiences.
But can a convict, a guttersnipe and an accidental time traveler prevent the destruction of a city and the death of thousands? Others are watching, and Felicia may not be the only time traveler in New Orleans.

She slipped into a trance and witnessed an event in the weapon's history. Later she was drawn closer and found herself back in time where the guns story was unfolding, and she was no longer herself...but instead she became the person holding the gun....

Imagine waking up one morning and not knowing anything. Recognition would be your only ability.
As you wake up, you realize that you are able to recognize.
Then, you recognize that there is existence, and that you are a part of it, too.
Only with such tiny steps, could you move ahead on the path of knowledge.
Imagine what absurd situations it could cause, if you didn’t know what to do with anything, and you had to start learning everything from scratch.
You wouldn't even know the names of the human body parts, nor their functions! You wouldn't know what to eat with, what to eat, even how to eat, at all!
How long would it take for you to get from absolute zero to the same level you are currently at right now, when reading this book synopsis?
But the protagonist of this story is not like you.
He also woke up the above-mentioned way, but he has an ability which, in that particular case, you wouldn't have.
The people that are using (and take advantage of) him, weren't prepared for this ability:
He may start learning from scratch, but they don't know how fast he's able to learn.
How long does it take for the protagonist to reach the intellectual level of a child from absolute zero?
Or to reach the intellectual level of an adult, if he's able to learn a lot faster than any human being?
What if he develops into something more than an ordinary man?
Or more than any man?
What will he become then?
Will we still be able to control him? Should we, at all?
Will he be our friend, or our enemy?

“Phoebe’s an inventor. Well, not yet. Her invention changed the world. Well, not yet. For centuries people have been disappearing and it has something to do with Phoebe’s actions. Well, not yet.”
A past littered with disappearances of cats, people and concrete; an uncertain present full of destruction and 'necessary progress'; and a better future irrevocably intwined with its own history. Phoebe Fortune's at the centre of it all but she's not sure why.
