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.

The group felt that this was a very interesting but lengthy book so not everyone completed it. Characters and situations realistic, war scenes lengthy but eye opening for the situations at the time. A good read – would like to follow the trilogy.
