(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. In The Hope, which opens in 1948 and culminates in the miraculous triumph of 1967's Six-Day War, Wouk plunges the reader into the story of a nation's difficult birth and embattled infancy. When the tale resumes in The Glory, Wouk portrays the young nation once again pushed to the brink of annihilation—and 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.
