Wouk's scrupulous attention to historic accuracy and finely honed storytelling skills offer what many feel is the finest wartime novel ever written about World War II. It spans the globe from the Middle East to Japan...

Synopsis

These two classic works capture the tide of world events even as they unfold the compelling tale of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

The multimillion-copy bestsellers that capture all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of the Second World War -- and that constitute Wouk's crowning achievement -- are available for the first time in trade paperback.

Enlivened only occasionally by Wouk's story-telling talents, such nobly intentioned bombast is likely to be--to an even greater degree than The Winds of War-much-bought and little-read.

The chronological sequel to the earlier "The Winds of War," this extraordinary epic about the 1940s conveys authenticity...Wouk's novel provides us with some understanding of Western man's dilemma then and now.
