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.
Quotes from The Caine Mutiny
Life is a dream, a little more coherent than most.
This life is slow suicide, unless you read.
