Fall of eagles ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent. Beginning in 1815, the Holy Alliance between Prussia, Russia, and Austria formalized what had been a strictly familial support network. The House of Habsburg, the House of Hohenzollern, and the House of Romanov had long intermarried, resulting in an incredibly tangled web of relationships, a number of which led back to Queen Victoria of England. These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined. This miniseries focuses on the leading personalities of these three privileged families, and how they influenced the events that led to WWI

"Oliver, a university lecturer with an obsession for anagrams and crosswords, has been a question-setter for "Mastermind". When made redundant by the new Vice-Chancellor of the New University (his former Polytechnic) in a general restructuring of the university, Oliver decides to use his new-found freedom to search for his favourite crossword compiler, known only by the pseudonym of "Aristotle". When he locates "Aristotle's" Welsh home, he is horrified to find that it has been burnt down. He goes to the local police station to report "Aristotle" as a missing person and, while there, meets Diane Priest, a policewoman who, Oliver claims, is his 'predestined' companion. Oliver invites Diane to join him in his travels and later, when she is suspended from duty by her superiors, she decides to do so - joining Oliver in his search for "Aristotle". From that moment on, they share many life-threatening situations (as well as mutual love) before their quest for the elusive "Aristotle" comes to a final and gripping conclusion."--David McAnally, Internet Movie Database
