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.

The Winds of War and its sequel, War and Remembrance, are perhaps the most comprehensive reflections on WWII in the fictional canon. Having read a wide range of fiction and non fiction on the war, I keep coming back, again and again, to these two novels--if "fiction reveals truths that reality obscures" then these novels serve as keystones to understanding the conflict. In truth, (and according to Wouk's preface to War and Remembrance), Winds of War is more the "prequel" to the masterwork that is War and Remembrance; I am on my sixth time through both books, and I have to admit I never tire of vicariously experiencing this world-wide conflict through the eyes of Victor "Pug" Henry, his sons, Warren and Byron, and the disenchanted and frustrated state department diplomat Leslie Slote. All of the characters are exquisitely drawn, and Wouk's depiction of FDR hits all the right notes.
