Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a perennial favorite of readers young and old, Herman Wouk’s masterful World War II drama set aboard a U.S. Navy warship in the Pacific is “a novel of brilliant virtuosity” (Times Literary Supplement).

Herman Wouk’s boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life–and mutiny–on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater was immediately embraced, upon its original publication in 1951, as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of World War II.

In the intervening half century, The Caine Mutiny has sold millions of copies throughout the world, and has achieved the status of a modern classic.
