This is a historical [[TheEpic epic]] of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII set in two volumes, ''The Winds of War'', and ''War and Remembrance'', by Herman Wouk. It follows the Henry family and their friends around the world during the war. In effect, it is a "sight-seeing" tour, in which we are shown the war from as many perspectives as the author can manage. It has been called a World War II version of ''WarAndPeace'' and both volumes were later made into TV miniseries.

* AmericaWinsTheWar: Not quite; the role of the Soviets is acknowledged and Victor visits the USSR. But most of the main characters are Americans.
** The Contribution of the British Commonwealth is made aware particularly in the early years of the war. Victor makes it a key point of making sure how vital it is to keep the British going if the war is to be won.

* RealMenLoveJesus: Victor is a good churchgoer. More in a "Respectable '40's American" sense then in a "fanatic" sense, but a very devoted Christian nontheless.

Added DiffLines:

* HistoricalInJoke: Rhoda is thrilled to run into Errol Flynn, Byron rather less so. Flynn was suspected of being a Nazi spy during the war, though it was later proven to be completely false.
