Publisher Description

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.

A Tale for a True Sailor

“The Caine Mutiny” is perhaps the greatest characterization of the US Navy I’ve ever read, but not on the surface. There are of course antiquated ships and terms exclusive to the navy in the 1940s, but the behaviors of the enlisted, officers, and their reactions, the vulgar, distasteful gossip of the sailors while underway, and all the tangents Herman Wouk decides to describe about the sailors remains absolutely true of our navy today. As a sailor, I can attest that this is a must read for anybody wanting to know about life onboard a “small boy”. After all, a DMS and a DDG aren’t too different in terms of amenities…and in regard to the mutiny…you’re just going to have to start reading, become a sailor onboard the Caine, and experience it yourself. 5 Stars without a doubt.

I first read this book in the 1950’s. The characters and story have stayed with me. It is one of my favorite books of all time.
