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)

    "Recommended"

    Learn much about WWII and enjoy an engaging story simultaneously. What could be better? My only criticism is minor: Mr. Pariseau's voice has a pleasing sound, and he does a fine job with diction, pronunciation and accents, but he isn't always conscientious about emphasizing key words in the sentences he's reading. He could do a better job of illuminating meaning. The listener is forced to do a bit of that work for him. Still, I highly recommend this audiobook.

    Story
    "A modern day classic"

    "Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance" are two books that have been on my reading list for years but I just never seemed to get to. Finally, thanks to audible and Kevin Pariseau's wonderful narration, I had an even better experience than reading it myself.
    I won't recount the plot. The publishers summary does that and I hate it when people print spoilers. I will say that Wouk's story is a wonderful way to experience history using factual data told through the experience of a fictional character. The characters were interesting, the story well told and all in all I highly recommend it.

    "A must read!"

    Extraordinary saga - engaging and historically accurate. Kudos to Herman Wouk for his sensitive reminder of why we need to remember the holocaust. Beautifully narrated by K. Pariseau.

    "The greatest WWII epic ever"

    An unbelievable performance by Kevin Pariseau, that has to be heard to be believed, brings to life a story that has everything. History, tragedy, love, loss and victory. An awful war... Thank god we won. Perhaps the only war ever worth fighting.

    "Loved both books"

    Very thorough, emotional, vivid, and historically accurate epic scaling the entire war through the main characters' eyes.

    Highly recommended if you love WWII history, and both books are well written.

    "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.

    "There's nothing like it"

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