Ken Follett's magnificent new historical epic begins, as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.
A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man's world in the mining pits....An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson's White House.... A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy....And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution.
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, " Fall of Giants" takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families--and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again....

Utdrag ur boken:
If he was going to shoot at his own side, he would kill an officer rather than a soldier.

I was impressed by this great novel set during World War I and the period just before and a few years afterwards. Characters from different countries and the coincidences that occur reflect a reality that could very well have taken place when the book in its entirety is based on historical facts.
The characters that the author created, I found very interesting. The people did not want war, they wanted food and a better future for their children. Few in the class decided and it caused millions of dead and injured. The book describes the period from 22 june 1911 to January 1924.

A very good and readable book
