In 2010, Follett launched "The Century Trilogy" with the No. 1 New York Times best seller Fall of Giants, which traced the lives of five interrelated families-American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh-through the early years of the 20th century. A daunting book, but most readers will be back for this follow-up, featuring the same families but moving them along to the rise of the Third Reich and World War II.

The follow-up to the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Fall of Giants" is a brilliant, page-turning epic about the heroism and honor of World War II, and the dawn of the atomic age.
