Description:
Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The nCentury Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families-nAmerican, German, Russian, English, and Welsh-as they move through nthe world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, nand the struggle for women's suffrage. Thirteen-year-old Billy Williams nenters a man's world in the Welsh mining pits...Gus Dewar, an American nlaw student rejected in love, finds a surprising new career in Woodrow nWilson's White House...two orphaned Russian brothers, Grigori and Lev nPeshkov, embark on radically different paths half a world apart when their nplan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and nrevolution... Billy's sister, Ethel, a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts, takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert nherself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German embassy in London... n nThese characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as, in a saga of unfolding drama and intriguing complexity, Fall nof Giants moves seamlessly from Washington to St. Petersburg, from the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a npalace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly nresearched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. It is destined to be a new classic. n nIn future volumes of The Century Trilogy, subsequent generations of the same families will travel through the great events of the rest of nthe twentieth century, changing themselves-and the century itself. With passion and the hand of a master, Follett brings us into a world nwe thought we knew, but now will never
