Product Description:

In Winter of the World, Follett takes readers into the heroism and horror of World War Two, and the dawn of the atomic age. From on the ground inside Nazi Germany to above Pearl Harbor, from the halls of power in London and Washington D.C. to the deeply hidden spy networks in Russia and Europe, Winter of the World shows how close the world came to selfdestruction in the midtwentieth century under the leadership of both brilliant and insane leaders. Brilliantly plotted, expertly researched, and with all the pageturning thrills Follett is known for, Winter of the World proves the promise of Fall of Giants and is guaranteed to be one of Ken Follett's biggest successes.

Review:

'A supersize epic . . . an intricate plot that spans the Second World War and its aftermath. There are spies, American heiresses, Russian gangsters and do-good boys from the East End whose overlapping stories paint a remarkable, and at times heartwrenching, vision of humanity at that time' --The Bookseller

"Autumn nights mean you can submerge yourself in the 818 pages of the second instalment in Follett s masterpiece...It superbly humanises history." --Peterborough Telegraph

"Fictional characters mingle with real figures from the past as the ruins of one war lead to another. Follett s research is so thorough that Winter of the World could almost be a history text book; as with Fall of Giants, the chapters on Russia are particularly strong."
--Western Mail

"An intricately plotted, epic tale that will capture the imagination." --Choice magazine

"The nights are drawing in and it's time to pick up the second thrilling instalment of Follett's epic..." --Lancashire Evening Post

"An intricately plotted, epic tale that will capture the imagination." --Choice magazine
