        Wonderful series, very accurate historically. Would purchase the 2nd half if it weren't so expensive. Can't think of anything negative about it. Characters were wonderful and very believable. The attention to detail is amazing. Should be used in schools as a teaching tool.

                Winds of War is the best example of historical drama I have ever read and seen. Herman Wouk wrote from the heart and succeeded in creating a moving and informative work that all can enjoy even if one wasn't part of the years covered.
