Expert's answer

1.     How do you physically write a book at age 100? For most of my life, I wrote longhand. I’ve always been able to type, of course, but writing prose on an infernal machine was a big step for me. I’ve kept a journal since 1937 that’s about 100 volumes.

2.     Any bombshells buried in those volumes? I actually don’t know. I didn’t look at my diary while writing Sailor and Fiddler–I was writing from memory. If I started looking in my diaries, I might have said, “Oh, yes, let’s put in that.”

3.     What’s the most amazing change you’ve witnessed in your lifetime? I routinely check in with Israeli news on the computer–that’s one of the nice things about computers. And on this occasion, I read an illustrated story of Israeli air-force officers on a vast nuclear aircraft carrier, the U.S.S.

4.     What do you think of the state of the world today? The Middle East and ISIS? I used to answer questions like that when I gave interviews, which was very seldom, by saying that my expertise stopped in 1945.

5.     What’s your favorite memoir? Let’s start with James Boswell’s Life of Samuel Johnson–that’s a pretty good one.

6.     What was your favorite decade? I’ve got 10 to choose from. I’d have to say the 1940s when the big change in my life was going from writing comedy to going to sea as a naval officer.

7.     What is your fondest memory of the Navy, where you served for four years during World War II? It was a great period in my life. It expanded my vision beyond New York to the far shores of the Pacific. I was out at sea with a very different company from what I’d grown up with. It gave me a point of view, which I carry with me today. I’m a sailor.

8.     What was the secret of staying together for all 63 years of marriage to your late wife, Sarah? Love. It took us straight through all those years, solving everything together.

9.  10. Who was Pug Henry in Herman Wouk's "The Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance"? An officer in the Navy

10. You refer to the “folly of industrialized war” in your book. What do you mean by that? When war reaches the point that it did in Leyte Gulf, where the war machinery overwhelmed the leadership of the war. Once the human race figured out how to dig uranium from the earth and make a projectile of it, it’s really the end of the war. In most of my lifetime, the two powers that could do it refrained from doing it because it was sheer folly ending in suicidal absurdity.

11. 12. What is the title of David Halberstam's book about the United States' involvement in the Vietnam War? The Best and Brightest 

12. How many years did it take Herman Wouk to write the epic World War II story told in The Winds of War and War and Remembrance? 14 years

13. How many years did it take Herman Wouk to write the epic World War II story told in The Winds of War and War and Remembrance? The Winds of War 

14. This novel fictionalizes the history of the meteorologists whose job was to predict the weather ahead of the 1944 Allied invasion of France.

15. Which conflict is depicted in Herman Wouk's works The Winds of War and War and Remembrance? Second World War

16. In Herman Wouk's book The Winds of War and War and Remembrance, what is the last name of the American military family? Henry
