Winter of the World Book Two of the Century Trilogy

This novel continues the stories of five interrelated families who struggle with social, political, and economic turmoil in the mid-twentieth century, during which they witness the rise of Nazi Germany, the Spanish Civil War, and the horrors of World War II. It picks up right where the first book left off, and continues up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until she commits 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 American social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set, until the war transforms her life, not just once but twice, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war, but the war to come. These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as their experiences illuminate the cataclysms that marked the century. From the drawing rooms of the rich to the blood and smoke of battle, their lives intertwine, propelling the reader into dramas of ever increasing complexity.

  • "Akcja książki rozpoczyna się w momencie dojścia Hitlera do władzy w 1933 roku, kilka lat po wydarzeniach opisanych w Upadku Gigantów. Pojawiają się tu postacie, których losy składały się na fabułę tamtej książki, a także ich dorastające i dorosłe dzieci. W Niemczech mnożą się akty przemocy wobec Żydów, represje wobec politycznych przeciwników partii nazistowskiej. Rodziny von Ulrichów i Francków czynnie przeciwstawiają się nazistom i płacą za to najwyższą cenę. Wołodia, syn Grigorija Peszkowa, attache przy ambasadzie radzieckiej w Berlinie, prowadzi działalność wywiadowczą, werbując niemieckich informatorów. Jednym z nich jest Werner Franck. Drugi z braci Peszkowów, Lew, realizuje swoje marzenie-- emigruje do Ameryki i zdobywa fortunę. Jego córka Daisy przyjeżdża do Londynu, gdzie poznaje sympatyzującą z faszystami rodzinę hrabiego Fitzherberta. Uwodzi syna hrabiego, zostaje jego żoną. Na uroczystym balu w Cambridge poznaje Lloyda Williamsa, który zakochuje się w niej od pierwszego wejrzenia. Daisy nie odwzajemnia jego uczucia. Zrozpaczony Lloyd wyjeżdża do Hiszpanii i zgłasza się jako ochotnik do brygad międzynarodowych. Tuż przed wybuchem II wojny światowej los ponownie zetknie go z Daisy."

  • "It is a time of change, a time of darkness. The Englander Lloyd Williams will witness the rise of Hitler and decides to fight against fascism."
  • "Berlin in 1933 is in upheaval. Eleven-year-old Carla von Ulrich struggles to understand the tensions disrupting her family as Hitler strengthens his grip on Germany. Into this turmoil steps her mother's formidable friend and former British MP, Ethel Leckwith, and her student son, Lloyd, who soon learns for himself the brutal reality of Nazism. He also encounters a group of Germans resolved to oppose Hitler - but are they willing to go so far as to betray their country? Such people are closely watched by Volodya, a Russian with a bright future in Red Army Intelligence. The international clash of military power and personal beliefs that ensues will sweep over them all as it rages from Cable Street in London's East End to Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, from Spain to Stalingrad, from Dresden to Hiroshima. At Cambridge Lloyd is irresistibly drawn to dazzling American socialite Daisy Peshkov, who represents everything his left-wing family despise. But Daisy is more interested in aristocratic Boy Fitzherbert - amateur pilot, party lover and leading light of the British Union of Fascists. Back in Berlin, Carla worships golden boy Werner from afar. But nothing will work out the way they expect as their lives and the hopes of the world are smashed by the greatest and cruellest war in the history of the human race."@en
