Enough people liked this novel to make it a commercial success in its day. Wouk, being a great fan of the earlier Thomas Wolfe, and a very commercial writer himself, cobbled together this tale of a brilliant, but unknown writer, who does acheive commercial success, but driven by his demons, works himself to death. I wasn't really that interested in Youngblood by the time I finished the book.

I'll read anything Herman Wouk writes. This tale of his inspiration and writing career is truly wonderful, but I miss the awe and wonder on first readings of The Caine Mutiny and Marjorie Morningstar

When readers think of war novels, Tolstoy's classic, War And Peace often comes to mind. I believe Herman Wouk's, War And Remembrance, is destined to become an all time classic as well. An amazing novel on so many fronts !
