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)

    I love historical fiction, history (especially WWII), rock bios, well-told and interesting fiction, non-fiction, & a bit of fantasy sci-fi.

    "Just as good as book one"

    This book picks up right from where book one leaves off. if you read book one and enjoyed it then this book is a must. More adventures during the mid to final years of WW2 with the characters you've grown to love and hate from Book One. The Henry's, Jastro's and the rest of the players continue to be pivotal players as the Second World War heats up and winds down.

    Don't miss out on the second half of this riveting story.

    "Perfection!"

    Educational, entertaining, inspirational---pure genius delivered both by the author and narrator. Wouk brings the dark events of WWII to life in this gripping sequel to The Winds of War. Pariseau delivers another perfect performance. I can't find enough praise for this audible experience!

    "Fabulous"

    A classic everyone should read, and the facts within, never forgotten.
    Narration, excellent.
    This is the continuation of Winds of War so listen to that first.

    "Magical"

    A wonderful story and one in which the author is able to transport you back into time and be there with the Henry's in the 1940s and World War II.
    It's educational while entertaining & so easy to listen to that I couldn't put it down. I laughed and I cried. This book is the real deal and the performance of the narrator was simply unbelievable.

    "Fantastic story"

    One of the best books I have ever read! Beautifully written and researched. The characters live on long after the final sentence is read.

    "Intensely fascinating book."

    One of the best overall pictures of WW2 that I have read. Great presentation. It filled in some gaps for me.

    Used to be an avid reader, but became an avid knitter. Eventually found Audible and can now have the best of both worlds.

    "Sad the book is over"

    While I'm glad the historical events from this book are over, I'm sad the book has ended. You grow attached to the characters.

    I love how accurate and factual this book is, while at the same time drawing you in and acquainting you with (some fiction some actual) people from that time
    I also loved how the Nazi side of events were explored. Though I'd never agree with them, it's fascinating (like a train wreck) to glimpse.

    The very end where the author lists what was what and who was who in real life (pointing out who was fact/fiction) was great. I hated history in high school, but now in later life I absolutely love it, and this is my favorite way to take it in.

    Can't recommend this enough if you have similar taste.

    A side note: when I first began The Winds of War, the narrators dry voice was of concern to me. Not sure I could endure the many hours involved in this. It didn't take long before realizing that his was the best voice for the book, and I'll miss that too!

    "Lots of details"

    Wow I can't believe I finished this very long book. It was interesting but very detailed. I feel like I have finished a class on war. Story line was short compared to length of book.
