Book 1 – The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wouk

(Title cover from the film of the same name, starring Humphrey Bogart)

A very readable and interesting novel, describing an entirely fictional breakdown in naval discipline on board a WW2 American minesweeper and the subsequent legal palaver.

It’s got something for everyone; romance, comedy, action, injustice and courtroom drama. This is proper middlebrow fiction, which no-one seems to publish these days.

The film is great as well.
