Language: English . Brand New. 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.
