Ken Follett's Fall of Giants, the first novel in the extraordinary historical epic Century Trilogy, was an international sensation, acclaimed as "sweeping and fascinating, a book that will consume you for days or weeks" - USA Today. Now Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families: American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh. Enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs and the beginning of the long Cold War. Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide, until daring to commit a deed of great courage and heartbreak. American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events, one in Washington the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific.
