Page turner with a great history to tell. Looking forwar to second part. Although some story lines might be just a little bit off the historical thruth, it gives you great insight in family lives and politics in the time leading up to and during the great war
I am glad I read this book. After laying my hands on Disciples of Fortune, I was looking for a compelling historical saga with a similar outreach. However, I doubted Fall of the Giants when my friend suggested it to me. I had fantasy in mind. But it turned out to be something else. It is rare to find such complete story, a historical saga that fits the genre in every sense of the word---involving many countries and continents and taking on the history-rich last century with all its complexities in what may be considered an effortless manner.Plain great.
