Fall of Giants by Ken Follett

This is the 4th historical novel I’ve read from this author. Each one closer to modern day.

Fall of Giants … covers notable events such as World War I, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage. …

It’s a big, important book.

England, Russia, Germany, France, USA.

Coal miners, Russian orphans, British, Russian and German aristocrats, the militaries of all those nations.

Woodrow Wilson, Lenin, Trotsky, Churchill …

The main theme is the stupidity and wastefulness of World War I.

He does write great love stories.

I highly recommend these books. Fall of Giants is the best of the fist four, I’d say.

Read a NY Times book review.
