Zusatztext Praise for Winter of the World "Gripping . . . powerful." — The New York Times "Some of the biggest-picture fiction being written today." — The Seattle Times "A consistently compelling portrait of a world in crisis." — The Washington Post   "Masterfully sweeping. . . . Political intrigue! amorous episodes! suspense! and drama. History comes to life." — The Louisville Courier-Journal "[Follett] is so good at plotting a story! even one that takes on such a complex topic such as the World War II era. That's what makes Winter of the World so hard to put down. You want to know what happens next." —The Associated Press "An entertaining historical soap opera." — Kirkus Reviews "The man tells a story so well. . . . Follett can make things glow with some beautifully written episodes." — St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Clips along at a brisk pace. . . [Follett] knows how to keep the pages turning and how to make the reader feel a kinship with the characters' struggles. . . . No matter the ultimate destination! readers can expect to savor the journey." — The Christian Science Monitor Informationen zum Autor Ken Follett  burst into the book world with  Eye of the Needle , an award-winning thriller and international bestseller. After several more successful thrillers, he surprised everyone with  The Pillars of the Earth  and its long-awaited sequel,  World Without End , a national and international bestseller. Follett’s new, magnificent historical epic, the Century Trilogy, includes the bestselling  Fall of Giants ,  Winter of the World , and  Edge of Eternity . He lives in England with his wife, Barbara. Klappentext Picking up where Fall of Giants, the first novel in the extraordinary Century Trilogy, left off, Winter of the World follows its five interrelated families-American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh-through a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the great dramas of World War II, and into 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 . . . . English student Lloyd Williams discovers in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism . . . . Daisy Peshkov, a driven social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set until war transforms her life, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war but also the war to come.
