Herman Wouk

Herman Wouk, an extraordinarily gifted historical novelist was born on this date. Wouk wrote The Caine Mutiny, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1951, and The Winds of War & War and Remembrance. All three of these works were very influential in my upbringing as a budding historical novelist. He was described as an American Tolstoy. He was a US Navy WWII vet serving in the Pacific aboard several ships during WWII. At one point, he was the executive officer of the USS Southland. He died May 17, 2019.
