Winter of the World is the second novel in Ken Follett's uniquely ambitious Century trilogy. On its own or read in sequence with Fall of Giants and Edge of Eternity, this is a spellbinding epic of global conflict and personal drama.
A BATTLE OF IDEALS

AN EVIL UPRISING
Berlin is in turmoil. Eleven-year-old Carla von Ulrich struggles to understand the tensions disrupting her family as Hitler strengthens his grip on Germany. Many are resolved to oppose Hitler’s brutal regime – but are they willing to betray their country?
A GLOBAL CONFLICT ON A SCALE NEVER SEEN BEFORE
Shaken by the tyranny and the prospect of war, five interconnected families’ lives become ever more enmeshed. An international clash of military power and personal beliefs is sweeping the world, but what will this new war mean for those who must live through it?
Winter of the World
The book is great and highly educative about the historical events leading to the second world war. However, there is a technical problem with the download, in the second book the recording jumps half way to the third book. This is unpleasant as the story is indeed gripping.
