Publisher's Summary

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.

These multimillion-copy best sellers are stirringly read by Kevin Pariseau for their first appearance in downloadable audio.

Also listen to The Winds of War.

What the Critics Say

"Brilliant…. An outstanding novel and at the same time a great work of history…. Wouk has more than recaptured the period; he has given it life." (Henry Kissinger)

"Those who lived through World War II can most fully appreciate the resonances in this uncommonly readable book. But it is clearly meant – and recommended – for those who did not." (Time)

"Moving, thrilling fiction…. Wouk is a magnificent storyteller." (Boston Globe)

    "Terrific story told with historical accuracy"

    It is easy to forget all the twists and turns of WWII. Especially (for me) the degree to which the U.S. government supplied the Soviet Union equipment through the Lend Lease program.

    I've now read it, watched it and listened to it, and the Audible experience might be the best of the three.

    "Kept my rapt attention throughout!"

    This book takes you right into the lives and the world as it was during world war 2. Important history that we all should learn from is all around you throughout the story. What a great way to understand that time and the choices and events of that occurred. The narrator is exceptional!

    "Outstanding performance!"

    Performance deserves a ten. Story is powerful and brutal. A great tome. The two books together put one's petty complaints here in the U.S. Into perspective. The book asks us to wonder about what it is to be human and conscious in times of great challenge.

    Story
    "A let down after the build of of "Winds of War""

    After the build up of the prequel, "Winds of War," through such elaborate detail and description, the second half of "War and Remembrance" felt rushed almost as though Wouk was tired of writing. I did get a sense of war weariness that the country may have felt after several years leading up to and then the three years of war itself, and maybe this was Wouk's intention behind the way he wrote the second half of this book. However, the detail and well thought out out plot of his prequel and most of this book were in stark contrast to the 70 mile an hour blur of wrapping things up that was the ending. This is not a knock against the story overall, but I feel a bit of disappointment in how quickly the end came after so much time building up to it.

    Story
    "The doom of Men is that they forget"

    Between The Winds of War and War and Remembrance we have a Tolstoy in Leon Uris. The Audiobook version brings the sweeping narrative of the Henry family to life over a sweeping vision of the Second World War.
