When William Came by Saki

When William Came by Saki
At the time of writing When William Came was set several years in the future, after a fictional war between Germany and Great Britain, which Germany had won. The book is a story of life in London after Germany occupation, and the changes that come with it. Novels such as this harnessed England's fear of invasion to such an extent that the daily press published public sightings of German spies and saboteurs on a regular basis. Such was the paranoia that the British Secret Service was purportedly established to investigate these espionage claims. In 1914, Monro felt that appeasement was the wrong way to deal with Germany; he wanted to sound a warning that if the British did not prepare for war, the consequence would be subjugation. This novel is the consequence, propaganda swiftly overtaken by events; he wanted to portray a Britain which had lost a war and been annexed by Germany to shock public opinion towards war preparation.
