Synopsis

Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with THE WINDS OF WAR and continues in WAR AND REMEMBRANCE, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - the drama, the romance, the heroism and the tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very centre of the maelstrom."First-rate storytelling." - New York Times"Compelling . . . A panoramic, engrossing story." - Atlantic Monthly"The depth of the detail Wouk brought to bear on his subjects was impressive" - Financial Times"Wouk is a matchless storyteller with a gift for characterization, an ear for convincing dialogue, and a masterful grasp of what was at stake in World War II." - San Francisco Chronicle
