Publisher's Summary

Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.
These multimillion-copy best sellers are stirringly read by Kevin Pariseau for their first appearance in downloadable audio.

Critic Reviews

"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)

What can I say that hasn't already been said??

Considering the fact that there are so many reviews on these two books, I'll be brief. I owe you that much, if you're choosing to read this one, after all. This book is THE BEST historically accurate FICTIONAL book on WWII you will ever read, period. The narrarator could not have been better. I honestly cannot think of any reason whatsoever that anyone would rate this less than 5 stars. The characters are so deeply fleshed out, that by the end you actually CARE what happens to them. This is remarkable when you consider that the book follows something like 10 different people (so it seems). IF you love WWII, and feel like reading about a very interesting group of people that lived through some of its greatest moments, then this is the book(s) for you!!

This is the "War and Peace" of a generation.

Wouk plus Pariseau equals genius

After reading and listening to "The Winds of War" I knew I would love "War and Remembrance" but the achievements of Wouk as a dramatist and historian in this sequel are significantly surpassing the first part. Not only are characters and scenes masterly presented but is the entire saga from the fist minute to the end consistent and captivating. I have never heard a more artistic and enjoyable narrating as the one by Kevin Pariseau. Only a person deeply enjoying his work is able to achieve such an outstanding performance. Kevin is coloring the entire story - just listen to part 4, chapter 5 @ 25:43 where he reads the scene on the airbase in Greenland - comedy pure. Pariseau manages all emotions, sings (and I guess dances) and he is also amazing when compassion and silent tones are required. I read and heard a lot about WW II history but can even recommend "The Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance" to learn about this global disaster - better than a lot of history books. All in all a revelation - nothing more, nothing less.

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!

Best read/listen-to for years!

If you could sum up War and Remembrance in three words, what would they be?

Sad Joyful Absorbing

What was one of the most memorable moments of War and Remembrance?

Too many to mention but the parallel juxtaposition of fact carried by the fictional family is wonderfully done. The descriptions of the treatment of the Jews is particularly moving.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Pariseau – was your favourite?

Pug Henry

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A family's experiences of World War II

Any additional comments?

When I could physically read books, I used to love my hour or so in bed last thing at night reading a good book and not wanting to put it down. Because of my disability, I now listen to all my reading material and the same 'last thing at night' routine is still in place. Listening to Winds of War and then War and Remembrance has had the same effect! The need to listen-on to these stories written by a 'Master' storyteller has been a real joy - even if my quota of sleep has been seriously shortened these past few weeks. I can only highly recommend these books. The production quality is superb; the reader brilliant and the content - although harrowing at times - makes these recordings a 'must have' because of their authentic telling of World events.

War II - A narrative of World Change

Well researched documentary on World War II made more interesting with fiction interwoven. I really enjoyed this book which provided insights behind the politics and strategies of the struggle between nations for world domination and order. A great sequel to 'Winds of War'.
