The basic premise is that a [[TimeTravel time traveller]] [[AfterTheEnd from the future]] has gone back in time to 1772, and gives William Pitt the Elder a mission - [[TakeOverTheWorld Unite the world]] [[SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld to save the world]] under the [[TheBritishEmpire British Empire]] and prevent the [[ApocalypseHow apocalyptic]] [[WorldWarIII war]] from happening in 2258.

Now has a [[OnceMoreUntoTheChappaai sequel]], in which there is a [[CrossOver crossover]] with [[StargateVerse Stargate]]. [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=209943 Read it here]]
