9780002219419: The Winds of War

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 — and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II — as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war’s maelstrom. “The Winds of War gives more vivid pictures of the principal leaders of the war than military and political history could. Fiction is better than history at showing ‘how it really was’ where matters of human character are concerned.” — Political Science Quarterly “First-rate storytelling.” — New York Times “With the whole world as its setting, The Winds of War tells the intimate story of an American family — a Navy family — caught up in the vortex of world conflict. . . . World history comes to life at a personal, eyewitness level.” — Philadelphia Inquirer “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
