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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Unforgettable

This is a series I am drawn to listen to repeatedly, despite its length. In part because I fear honor bound to do so. I hope many others will take the time to listen at least once. The performance by the narrator is outstanding. The historical accuracy is evident. Thank you Mr. Wouk!

A completely amazing historical account of WW2

As it's predecessor "Winds of War" captured the sentiment of pre-war history, this book picks up where it left off, with the same characters (plus additional characters as well), and dives right into the European and Pacific Theaters. It goes into great detail of the issues the Jewish people had to face. Simply masterful!!It's an investment of 56 hours of the listeners time, but we'll worth the effort. You won't be disappointed.

An amazing historical piece.

Amazing story and narrator. This is well worth your time if you want to know the truth about WW2 and the philosophy of many people involved. You will not be able to put this down as the story is extremely gripping. 5 stars for all aspects of the book and performance.

Outstanding

One, or rather two, of the best books ever written. I wish every teacher, politician, and American would read this factual account of WW2 through the fictionalized families in this novel. I loved it.

What a Ride...

I listened to The Winds of War and War and Remembrance back to back. I didn't mean to do that (over 100 hours long) but I got caught up in the story and in the history of the period and could hardly "put it down". It is a wonderful story, well read and I thoroughly recommend it.
