Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

“History buffs will delight in the World War II backdrop, but the book’s action, style and unremitting pace make it a triumph across-the-board.” Kirkus Reviews
An October 2013 Thriller of the Month: www.e-thriller.com
A Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Finalist
Lt. Art Sutton and his war-weary Special Forces team parachute into Nazi Germany in 1945 to destroy targets behind enemy lines. What they don't know: during the jump they have somehow warped through time. They land in deeply forested Germany--in 2011. They start blowing things up. The young soldiers feel like heroes; the present-day German police hunt them down like the terrorists they appear to be; US forensics experts race to uncover the identity of a mysteriously intact body wearing WWII dog tags. What is good? Who is evil? Filled with action, historically accurate detail, and even romance, this complex tale will keep you riveted through every surprising and intriguing twist.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly entertaining 28 novembre 2013
Par Robert Krueger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
In 1945 Army Rangers parachute into Bavaria on a mission to destroy military targets. A massive electrical storm hits their aircraft just as they are exiting. Suddenly, it is a different time, 66 years later, but they are unaware of this. They continue their misslion. Thus, begins a tale of past and present becoming intertwined. As you read, you'll almost believe the paranormal is real.

The story line is skillfully developed. Characters are believable; the author does a first-rate job introducing and developing his characters. What is especially interesting is the historical context in which the novel is written. The historical content, which is integral to the story, connects story with history. This is a feature that adds realism. Timothy Ashby understands German character and philosophy.

To summarize: this is a very entertaining -- can't put down -- novel grounded in history, with believable characters, and a good, action-packed story line. Oh yes, the ending brought a smile to my face. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, A Novel Not for Children (about good and evil as in the Holocaust and beyond).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Time Warp made to look real. 30 mars 2017

I once watched a movie about a modern aircraft carrier going through a time warp and ending up in the Pacific west of Hawaii just days prior to Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941. The concept of going back in time with modern equipment fighting against zero's was interesting as a former navy pilot might like to speculate.
Tim has gone the other way, from World War II to the present in Germany with soldiers on the ground. I found this really interesting and marveled at how he got fictional characters to play in real time, real world and make it so plausible A GREAT read. Couldn't put it down.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty Good Premise; Convoluted Telling; Flat Characters 27 février 2014
Par Julie - Publié sur Amazon.com

*** I received a free copy in exchange for an honest opinion ***
I enjoyed the story's premise and what the author tried to do, but the execution of the plot left me a little non-plussed.
The end scene was full of action and fairly fitting for the rest of the tale, but I couldn't bring myself to really care about any of the characters. The bad guys had little to no redeeming qualities. The good guys seemed unduly oblivious. There was no rhyme or reason for the miraculous event. Everybody just seems to collectively think "well, that's weird" and go about their business. I also found everybody's vocabulary a little too limited to 4 letter words. Soldiers can be a rough bunch, I get it, but it seemed everybody relegated everybody else to being an illegitimate child or f-bomb something. Once or twice or three times for effect I can see, but it got tedious after a while.

Premise (4/5 stars) - WWII paratroopers get dropped into a storm and land 66 years later. That's a neat idea.
Characters (2/5 stars) - There weren't that many characters and they still came up half-baked to me. Roth - grumpy sergeant; Sutton - poster boy soldier who just wants to save his guys, Paula - token lady, etc.
Transitions (1/5 stars) - The author tried to put spaces between different sections, but there were very few tags as to which storyline was being followed. I'd be reading about Paula and Sutton in Germany then the book would switch over to Cassera in the US and switch back a few paragraphs later. Having location tags would have greatly alleviated that problem.
Ending (3.5/5 stars) - Full of action. Decently done.

Conclusion: I couldn't get into it, but that's not saying you won't. The story has a very cool premise and ends fittingly. If the things that bothered me have little to no impact on you, give the story a chance.

Six WWII soldiers go from 1945 to 2011. They still think they are fighting the war against the Germans. Unfortunately some Germans still think they are in WWII. One by one the Americans get picked off. An excitingly written story that, like the time travelers, you fall into very easily. Root for the American soldiers.Very exciting ending and epilog! Highly recommend this book!!!!!

It's very rare nowadays to find a book that's based on a premise that hasn't been worked over dozens, or even hundreds of times before. However, when I received a promotional e-mail about Timothy Ashby's "Time Fall," I was caught by surprise, because its premise was that extreme rarity... something I'd never read before and that, frankly I wondered if the author could pull off for the course of an entire novel. Somewhat surprisingly, "Time Fall" delivers exactly what the publisher promises... a story about World War II American soldiers transported to the present day where they continue to battle on. Even better, author Ashby makes his storyline reasonably plausible and, more importantly, highly entertaining.

The story begins in April, 1945 (the same time as the popular new movie "Fury"), in the last days of the European campaign. An elite U.S. Ranger squad of six paratroopers is on a secret mission to land behind enemy lines in Bavaria. They are supposed to destroy as many military targets as they can and raise enough of a ruckus to convince the Germans a major offensive is taking place there so they will divert troops to Bavaria, weakening the defenses where the actual attack will take place. However, things don't go as planned when the paratroopers are somehow transported to the same location in the present day (actually 2011, when "Time Fall" apparently was written).

The squad, however, still thinks it's 1945, and, thanks to a bizarre set of coincidences, everything and everyone they encounter seem to appear and act consistently with their understanding (especially since they're moving at night and can't always see things clearly in the dark). The first target they attack is a military base now used by U.S. troops. They recognize the U.S. logos on the equipment but think the Germans are masquerading as Americans, just as they had done in the Battle of the Bulge. The second target is even more hostile; a group of Islamic terrorists is in hiding there planning a major terrorist attack. To pull off the attack, the terrorists plan to disguise themselves as police, and, wouldn't you know it, the police uniforms look much like World War II German army uniforms. Naturally, a big firefight ensues.

As soon as U.S. and German authorities learn about what happened, they start investigating, and it appears to them that the surviving G.I.'s from 1945 are actually surviving terrorists. To make matters worse, even though the soldiers think they're still involved in World War II, their remaining "target sites" contain lots of innocent civilians, and, unless the soldiers realize what's really happening and stop (or someone stops them), the results could be just as bad as an actual terrorist attack.

Ashby has clearly done a good bit of research into U.S. and German military history, and his description of uniforms, equipment, weapons, and other materials seems quite accurate. Further, he's put a lot of thought into his story, and most of what occurs is at least plausible enough for readers who enjoy this type of book to accept. His storyline soon becomes quite complicated, shifting from the point of view of the G.I.'s (who wind up getting separated) to the various people trying to find out who and where they are. Even though the story is complicated, Ashby describes events clearly and, for the most part, the action is easy to follow. Eventually, the plot does get a bit too contrived (it's hard to believe the squad could stay in a large estate and not be shown some form of modern technology that would help them realize they weren't in 1945 any more), but readers eager to see how things play out will probably not be all that annoyed.

As far as the characters are concerned, "Time Fall" is more of a mixed bag. The most fully developed character is the commander of the paratrooper squad, who, although he's injured and separated from his men, figures out what's really going on and, with the help of a local woman, tries to both stop and save his men. Unfortunately, some of the other characters are stock villains, including some ex-Nazis, who, despite being at least in their 70s, have somehow arisen to positions of power in the German police forces hunting the G.I's. The book has a few too many fanatics, whose language seems to come straight from an "Indiana Jones" movie.

On one level, "Time Fall" is a very well crafted gimmick book. Author Ashby takes a seemingly impossible premise and makes the action in the book seem plausible, with one clever explanation after another. However, the book is considerably more than a gimmick. Take away the time travel element and it's still a very good thriller, with a couple of quite likable central characters. I have a feeling that a number of people will experience their own form of time travel when they read this book: they'll lose complete track of time while they're reading and wonder just where the time went when they finish.
