Description

The first in Ken Follett's bestselling Century Trilogy, Fall of Giants is a huge novel that follows five families through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for votes for women.

It is 1911. The Coronation Day of King George V. The Williams, a Welsh coal-mining family, is linked by romance and enmity to the Fitzherberts, aristocratic coal-mine owners. Lady Maud Fitzherbert falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German Embassy in London. Their destiny is entangled with that of an ambitious young aide to U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and with two orphaned Russian brothers, whose plans to emigrate to America fall foul of war, conscription and revolution.

In a plot of unfolding drama and intriguing complexity, Fall of Giants moves seamlessly from Washington to St Petersburg, from the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty.

    A fast moving book that puts into the middle of the web of intrigue and class conflict in Britain, Russia and Germany before, during and after the First World War with side trips to America and France. Written with the author's usual historical accuracy and careful depiction of his character's words, actions and thoughts which make them blend in seamlessly with real history. I am looking forward to reading the sequels next.

    A Truly Great book. Very objectively researched and presented with an obvious knowledge of Western and Eastern Ideology as well as the factual elements of history.

    Beautifully written, as always from this author, but the politics takes preference over the characters, a bit too much for me.

    Ken Follett writes another novel that grips you from the start to the end. It's a must read book that doesn't end with the last page.

    This is the third novel I have read by Ken Follett, all equally gripping from page one. I recon that I've learned more real history reading this author than I'm ever likely to learn by other means. A real hardworking craftsman and I just love his work.
  • Up to Ken's usual standard!

    An epic account of the First World War told through the intermingled fortunes of five separate families. Like his other blockbusters it is definitely worth a read!
