When William Came

When William Came

When William Came: A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns (1913) is SAKI's Dystopian novel predicting a futuristic "Great War" between Germany and Great Britain in which Germany is victorious and occupies London. "William" refers to Kaiser Wilhelm II. Interestingly, Munro himself was killed during World War I by a German sniper while fighting in the 22nd Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers.
