    AS NIGHT FALLS is not ponderous, heavy literature full of life every book should be. What it is, though, is one heck of a great story that is well-paced and told. Sure, there are a couple of plot holes that (momentarily) bothered me and a deus ex machina that pops up near the end of the story to play a brief but important role, which made me (momentarily, again) go “Hmmm ”. The capture of Damascus was a victory so influential that it made future major battles in the theatre unlikely, despite the ongoing nature of the conflict. According to Cyril Falls, nothing but distance itself could separate the EEF for long from "the mountain masses of Taurus and Amanus."Result: Hejaz-British Victory.

      So-called terrorist gangs were bombing the outskirts of Damascus, blowing up buildings in Aleppo, and were now attacking innocents in Bab Sharqi in the heart of the Old City of Damascus. Just a few clicks away al-Jazeera, MBC, CNN, and the BBC show pictures of wounded children, charred bodies, screaming women. Before Night Falls is the story of the writer, novelist, and poet Reinaldo Arenas who was born in a poor rural area of Eastern Cuba. He initially supported the Cuban Revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power in Arenas moved to La Habana in and grew interested in writing.

    Description. Night Falls is a book that records missions in the Nightfall campaign that the character has completed. There is both a Normal Mode and a Hard Mode version of the book. Any mission completed will be added to the book, regardless of the level of completion (ie: Standard Reward is sufficient). It can be redeemed by the same NPCs for rewards if you have at least half of its pages filled. The Before Night Falls Community Note includes chapter-by-chapter summary and analysis, character list, theme list, historical context, author biography and quizzes written by community members like you.
