This is an auction for THE CAINE MUTINY by Herman Wouk.

THE CAINE MUTINY culminates in the most famous trial scene in fiction. Humphrey Bogart played Queeg in the 1954 movie - a huge box office success, being the second highest grossing film of 1954.

"Upon its original publication in 1951, this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel was immediately embraced as one of the first serious works of fiction to help readers grapple with the human consequences of World War II. In the intervening half-century, Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining story of life - and mutiny - on a Navy warship in the Pacific theatre has achieved the status of a modern classic."

"THE CAINE MUTINY is a novel by Herman Wouk, published in 1951 and awarded the 1952 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. The Caine Mutiny grew out of Wouk's experiences aboard a destroyer-minesweeper in the Pacific in World War II. The novel focuses on Willie Keith, a rich New Yorker assigned to the USS Caine, who gradually matures during the course of the book. But the work is best known for its portrayal of the neurotic Captain Queeg, who becomes obsessed with petty infractions at the expense of the safety of ship and crew. Cynical, intellectual Lieutenant Tom Keefer persuades loyal Lieutenant Steve Maryk that Queeg's bizarre behavior is endangering the ship; Maryk reluctantly relieves Queeg of command. Much of the book describes Maryk's court-martial and its aftermath."
