Description
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 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.

display_description The gripping sequel to Pulitzer Prize-winner Herman Wouk's stunning historical novel The Hope... The Glory plunges immediately into the violence and upheaval of the Six-Day War of 1967-and continues the dramatic story of Israel's struggle for survival. A sprawling, action-packed novel, Wouk takes readers through the terrors of the Yom Kippur War, the famous Entebbe rescue, and the airstrikes on Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor-ending with the final hope for peace. Illuminating the inner lives of real Israeli leaders-including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Ariel Sharon-with both insight and compassion, Wouk tells the story of Israel's struggle to exist with an authoritative, gripping style that demonstrates not only the broad significance of this time in history, but also its personal impact on those who lived through it.
