‘Winds Of War’ Author Herman Wouk Dies

Herman Wouk, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of million-selling novels, died on Friday at 103. He won the Pulitzer in 1952 for The Caine Mutiny and other highlights included his two-part World War II epic, The Winds of War and War and Remembrance, both of which Wouk himself adapted for a 1983, Emmy Award-winning TV miniseries starring Robert Mitchum. The Winds of War received some of the highest ratings in TV history and Wouk’s involvement covered everything from the script to commercial sponsors.
