'The Winds of War' and the sequel 'War and Remembrance' are amazing books that follow one family through two world wars.


The Winds of War by Herman Wouk - A masterpiece of historical fiction, spellbinding and impossible to put down. This book was sweeping in scope, from the European Theater to the Pacific and all parts in between. Part one of a two parts series about World War II.


Pulitzer Prize winning author Herman Wouk is still writing at 96. Simon and Schuster is publishing his new novel The Lawgiver on October 9, 2012.


I rather enjoy this book, along with War and Remembrance. I recommend struggling through the lenght, it is worth it


Herman Wouk writes so beautifully. everyone knows about the caine mutiny, the winds of war, and war and remembrance. try "city boy" his coming of age story...aka "the adventures of herbie bookbinder".


"Get this through your thick Reserve head, the heat is on. I'll be the guy everybody will hate. That's okay. I'm the exec of this ship, and I'll carry out my orders, do you hear?" Gorton to Keefer, "The Caine Mutiny"
