Ranger Lt. Arthur Sutton is in command of five US Rangers. They board a C-47 transport plane. Their mission is to parachute into an assigned drop zone over enemy territory-Nazi Germany. After leaving the plane, time shifts forward and they drop into the year 2011. Unaware of the change, they continue with their assigned mission. During the process they are faced with incredible evidence that nearly 70 years have passed. Meanwhile, old enemies and political beliefs have not changed; some hardened soldiers refuse to give up their pogrom.

My Thoughts:

  • From the opening paragraph to the last page I was drawn in to the story. 
  • I love World War II stories, time travel gave it a unique edge. 
  • I was impressed with Timothy Ashby's knowledge of World War II, as well as current government security and military operations.  
  • Time Fall is an action story with a romantic twist. I felt this gave me a respite from the busy military activities.
  • I loved the arrangement of the story. The basics of it were easy to understand and keep up with. Changing time periods could have become confusing, but I loved it and had no problem with keeping up. 
  • I felt the US Rangers were true to their era. I felt the author did a fantastic job with representing them true to form.
