Overview

In The Hope, world-famed historical novelist Herman Wouk told the riveting saga of the first twenty years of Israel's existence, culminating in its resounding triumph in the Six-Day War, which amazed the world as few events of this turbulent century have. With The Glory, Wouk rejoins the story of Israel's epic journey in one of his most compelling works yet. From the euphoric aftermath of that stunning victory in 1967, through the harrowing battles of the Yom Kippur War, the heroic Entebbe rescue, the historic Camp David Accords, and finally the celebration of forty years of independence and the opening of the road to peace, Wouk immerses us in the bloody battles, the devastating defeats, the elusive victories.

The Hope was Wouk's saga of Israel's first 20 years. Now he completes his epic with a novel that portrays a young nation pushed to the brink of annihilation--and leads to today's struggle for peace. Wouk brings back the remarkable characters, including Zev Barak, Israel's point man in Washington and Emily Halliday, his American paramour.

    The second of two

    You would probably enjoy this book without having read The Hope, but it makes a lot more sense and means more if you have already read the first of the two. I really liked this book, especially the mingling of real people in the story. For instance, I know exactly who Benjamin Netanyahu is, but had no idea that his brother led the Entebbe raid. My favorite character is Zev, and I loved the relationship with Emily; I kept waiting to see what would happen between them. If you are interested in Israel and it's recent history, I think you will like this book.

    A reviewer

    This novel brilliantly concludes the saga of the Israeli people begun by Wouk 'peripherally' in Winds of War. Through War and Remembrance and The Hope, the reader is transported through the events of the 20th Century that led to the founding of modern day Israel.
