Herman Wouk, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Caine Mutiny, died Friday at his home in Palm Springs, Calif., his literary agent said. He was 103. Wouk, the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, aspired to be a satirist of American life, but his service as a naval officer in World War II, where he recorded his daily experiences, inspired his best-loved works.
