The gripping sequel to Pulitzer Prize–winner Herman Wouk’s stunning historical novel The Hope…


The Glory plunges immediately into the violence and upheaval of the Six-Day War of 1967—and continues the dramatic story of Israel’s struggle for survival. A sprawling, action-packed novel, Wouk takes readers through the terrors of the Yom Kippur War, the famous Entebbe rescue, and the airstrikes on Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor—ending with the final hope for peace.


Illuminating the inner lives of real Israeli leaders—including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Ariel Sharon—with both insight and compassion, Wouk tells the story of Israel’s struggle to exist with an authoritative, gripping style that demonstrates not only the broad significance of this time in history, but also its personal impact on those who lived through it.
