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)

Amazing sequel

I loved this book, it's a brilliant sequel to The Winds of War! Yes it requires a huge time commitment, but it is well worth it. I have enjoyed Kevin Pariseau's narration, mainly as there are less British accents for him to have a crack at.

There are some really harrowing sections that are delicately handled, on an audio par with the scenes in Schindlers List with the little girl in the red coat!

If you have downloaded The Winds of War - it is almost the law that you have to listen to War & Remembrance!

War and Remembersnce

The perfect companion to the Winds of War. They must be considered as one book. As good if not better than Wouk's first book. His historical research is faultless. I wish this could be a part of history classes at secondary level. One of the finest books I have ever received from Audible. I will listen to both books many times. Thanks Audible!
