Golden Hair

Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen

Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen by H. Beam Piper

A classic of alternate worlds. . . we open with the head of the Paratime Patrol contemplating his job, which he is about to hand on.  And then we have the Princess Rylla in the war council where her father and his councillors face a hopeless war.  And then we meet Calvin Morrisson, Pennsylvanian cop, going in with three others to take a murderer.  Except that he's accidentally swept up by a Paratime traveler, and dumped in another world.
