(From the publisher):
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. The Glory reprises the story of Israel's early years that culminated in the miraculous triumph of 1967's Six-Day War in The Hope. As Wouk here portrays the young nation facing formidable new challenges and pushed once again to the brink of annihilation, he sets the stage for today's ongoing pursuit of peace.
A magnificent saga-encompassing two novels, The Hope and The Glory—that brings brilliantly to life the epic adventure of Israel's founding and struggle to survive.
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 Dyan, 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.
