    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here 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.

    Story

    What can I say? By the end of this, I'd spent over a hundred hours with the Henrys and the Jastrows. It's quite a commitment, but I had to stop myself from going back and starting again - an impulse I've only had with Bryce Courtnay's Potato Factory epic saga. I thought I knew a lot about the second World War, but I didn't realize how much there was going on in the Pacific. This brought that epoch vividly to life and, although I wouldn't say I enjoy military history, I did here woven as it is into historical fiction. I believe this book came out in the late 70's and all in all, I think, it's held up rather well. Some of the female characters struck me as sterotypical, but others (Natalie particularly) were fully developed and I rooted for her all the way until the last page. Bravo!
