Overview

An epic of love, hatred, war and revolution

Ein weiterer großartiger Roman von Ken Follett folgt funf Familien durch die welterschutternden Ereignisse des Ersten Weltkriegs, der Russischen Revolution und den Kampf um das Wahlrecht fur Frauen. Eine Geschichte von verbluffender Komplexitat, die uns von Washington nach St. Petersburg fuhrt, vom Schmutz der Kohleminen zu den glitzernden Kronleuchtern der Palaste und von den Korridoren der Macht in die Schlafzimmer der Machtigen. Der Auftakt einer fulminanten Trilogie uber das 20. Jahrhundert.

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.
