Man on the Edge by Barry Wood is a show-stopping WWII adventure story. It’s 1938; war is looming and the leaders of Britain choose to ignore the stark warnings from Churchill. Their mistake. It's 1940. France has fallen to the Nazis, unable to stop Hitler’s forces. England is on its own. Then a British spy finds out that a nuclear weapon is in development by German scientists and things are about to get a whole lot worse. James Royce, mountaineer and engineer, learns that he is the only one who can save the world. Daphne Elliot, an American heiress, once loved and then left by Royce, trains to become a ferry pilot and aviatrix. Kenneth Sommers, Spitfire squadron leader, falls for Daphne in a big way, while teaching her to fly and battling the German Luftwaffe. Three lives, irrevocably intertwined. Three heroes each fighting their own battles, both personal and military, but not everyone can come out of this unscathed and not everyone can survive.
Man on the Edge by Barry Wood is a fascinating tale of courage, danger and, ultimately, survival in a world where many won't see another day. This is a gripping novel, well written with a mixture of fact and fiction. Set out almost like a diary of events, Man on the Edge takes us through earth and life-shattering events using descriptive prose that draws you in and makes you feel as though you are there. This is more than just a story about the war; this is part adventure, part thriller, part romance, all woven into a fantastic story. The events are very real, perfectly described, and the emotions that run throughout the story are easily felt. We have a cast of likable characters for whom you can't help but feel an affinity, pulled together in a dramatic tale of full of action. Great story, and highly recommended if you want a book you can immerse yourself in and not stop reading until the very end.
