Best selling American writer Herman Wouk turns 100 today. His body of work is truly remarkable. Beginning with The Caine Mutiny in 1951 (later made into a film) he moved on to create what is known as the War Novels. These are two volumes The Winds of War and War and Remembrance. The books covered World War II in depth - not only the historical events, but the characters, emotions and political impact surrounding it. Wouk continued to create works of fiction and non-fiction throughout his career.
The Atlantic magazine has written an wonderful piece about the Pulitzer Prize winner Wouk you can read here. Happy birthday Herman. And thank you.
