Overview

Like no other novelist at work today, Herman Wouk has managed to capture the sweep of history in novels rich in character and alive with drama. In The Hope, which opens in 1948 and culminates in the miraculous triumph of 1967's Six-Day War, Wouk plunges the reader into the story of a nation struggling for its birth and then its survival. As the tale resumes in The Glory, Wouk portrays the young nation once again pushed to the brink of annihilation-and sets the stage for today's ongoing struggle for peace.

Taking us from the Sinai to the Jerusalem, from dust-choking battles to the Entebbe raid, from Camp David to the inner lives of such historical figures as Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Anwar Sadat, these extraordinary novels have the authenticity and authority of Wouk's finest fiction-and together strike a resounding chord of hope for all humanity.

Author Biography: Herman Wouk's acclaimed novels include the Pulitzer Prize- winning The Caine Mutiny; Marjorie Morningstar; Don't Stop the Carnival; Youngblood Hawke; The Winds of War; War and Remembrance; Inside, Outside; The Hope; and The Glory. His nonfiction books include This Is My God and The Will to Live On: This Is Our Heritage.

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.

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.
