My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Just arrived from Jamaica through BM.

 

A magnificent work of fiction written by Herman Wouk with plenty of historical facts.

 

Among the main historical facts, one should mention the Battles of Singapore, Midway (unforgettable tale), Leyte Gulf, the Tehran Conference, the sieges of Imphal and Leningrad.

 

Some hints of the Manhattan project has also been provided by the author.

 

I have never heard about “The Paradise Ghetto” before I have read this book as well as the “Great Beautification”.

 

It seems the author performed a great research work on the scenes in Oswiecim or Auschwitz.

 

A TV series War and Remembrance (1988) was made based on this book.
