Overview

1918: German troops flood back from the Eastern Front for an all-out assault in France, before the Americans can join the war. The under-strength British retreat, and for the first time the real possibility of defeat comes home to a shocked nation.

At the front, Bertie struggles to bring his battered battalion out safely, while at home Jessie, secretly carrying his child, knows that sooner or later she must face her family's censure. At Morland Place, Teddy braves local opinion to bring German POWs to work on the land, little knowing how close to home the consequences of his decision will strike. And the terrible news arrives that Jack has been shot down.

Men are falling, each one the King of someone's heart. For the Morlands, only love, faith and compassion will keep the family safe until the longed-for days of peace . . .

The Morland Dynasty series is one of the longest running series I¿ve read in my life (Sweet Valley High and The Babysitters Club don¿t count). Set in England, this series covers centuries of the one family, the Morlands of Morland Place, near York.As the series has progressed, the time period for each book as become shorter. The Fallen Kings covers 1919 only, the last year of World War I. The book covers the war from the British perspective (both the air force and the army), as well as the roles women played (FANYs, nurses and other work). It also covers the fall of the Russian tsar, Spanish`flu, votes for women and the immediate aftermath of the war.I don¿t want to give away the character developments to anyone reading the series around this time period, but as is usual with the Morlands, there is tragedy as well as some happy plot developments.If you¿re interested in English history, I highly recommend the Morland Dynasty series. Great stories tied in with real history.
