The Hope

SKU: BPB-3240281166

Herman Wouk is one of the century's greatest historical novelist whose peerless talent for capturing the human drama of landmark world events has earned him worldwide acclaim. In The Hope, his long awaited return to the historical fiction,  he turns to one of the most thrilling stories of our time the saga of Israel.


In the grand epic style The Hope plunges the reader into major battles, the disasters and victories, and fragile periods of peace from the 1948 War of Independence to the astounding triumph of the Six-Day war in 1967. And since Israelis have seen their share of comic mishaps as well as heroism, this novel offers some of Herman Wouk's most amusing scenes since the famed "strawberry business" in The Caine Mutiny.


With authenticity, authority, and narrative force of Wouk's finest fiction, The Hope portrays not so much the victory of one people over another, as the gallantry of the human spirit, surviving and triumphing against crushing odds. In that sense it can be called a tale of hope for all mankind; a note that Herman Wouk has struck in his writings, against the prevailing pessimism of our turbulent century.
