A dramatic war fiction novel that explores all sorts of shocking what-ifs.In the hours before the allied invasion of Normandy, Major Mike Canyon is hoping for a few solid hours of shut eye. Between a horrific storm and a complement of unexpected prisoner-soldiers, Mike forgoes much needed rest and is thrust into the thick of things, working to salvage a nearly disastrous military exercise. The days wear on and, though the allied forces hoped for a speedy end to the combat, Nazi forces prove to be a formidible foe. Buzz bombs and air raids become everyday fare for those living in London and beyond. In time, the threat reaches across to American shores as the war is fought with more than just field combat.On a smaller scale, Mike is fighting a personal battle. He is technically married, but his wife wants a divorce. There are women aplenty in Europe available for stress relief and companionship. Navigating these wily advances and discerning who to trust may be more dangerous than a clever German army. Eventually the horrors of war transition into treachery brought on by greed and the aftereffects of deception.On the Edge of Twilight is a dramatic war fiction novel that explores all sorts of shocking what-ifs. The book was written "to entertain readers with a story set against a backdrop of extreme peril and to illustrate how close we came to actually losing the war with the Nazis." But that is only part of this riveting story. As the war epic fades into political intrigues and personal vendettas, the dynamic characters, particularly Mike and Barbara, really begin to dominate the pages. Aaron T Knight skillfully melts fact into fiction in this action-packed novel with political intrigues and shameless profiteering.

The allies were unaware of the futuristic machines of destruction. A gamble on a weather forecast launches D Day. This novel explores "what if" the invasion fails.
