"Time and Time Again" is a Time Travel Short Story written by H. Beam Piper which was published in the April 1947 issue of Astounding Science Fiction. It was his first published work.During the Third World War in 1975, Allan Hartley, a 43-year-old captain attached to the Scientific Warfare division of the General Staff, is critically injured as a result of an explosion. After being given a narcotic injection, he becomes "lost in a great darkness" and suddenly finds himself in his 13-year-old body in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on August 5, 1945, the day before the United States dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Using his knowledge of the next 30 years, Allan plans to alter history and prevent the war from ever happening.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })The short story was adapted as episodes of the science fiction radio series Dimension X in 1951 and its Spiritual Successor X Minus One in 1956 using the same script by Ernest Kinoy.

Hiroshima as a Unit of Measure: Allan claims that the bomb that will be dropped on Hiroshima the next day is a firecracker compared to the one that killed him during the Battle of Buffalo, which exploded ten miles away.

Cunning Linguist: Allan is highly proficient in French and Spanish (though he has "a Mexican accent you could cut with a machete") and knows a little German and Russian.

Peggy Sue: After being fatally injured in the Battle of Buffalo during World War III in 1975, Allan's 43-year-old mind is sent back in time to his 13-year-old body on August 5, 1945. Allan speculates that the mental transfer may have been caused by the bomb blast that injured him, the narcotic injection that he was given, something unforeseen in 1945 or a combination of all three.
