Famous author Herman Wouk has died at 103 years old. He passed away only 10 days before his 104th birthday.

He passed away in his sleep at his home in Palm Springs, California, according to USA Today. Wouk was reportedly still working on a book at the time of his passing.

During his writing career, he published several notable works including “The Caine Mutiny,” which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Other popular books include “The Winds of War” and “War and Remembrance.”  

Additionally, many of his works were inspired by Biblical concepts. “This is My God” explores the Jewish faith and “The Language God Talks: On Science and Religion” explains Wouk’s perspective on how faith and science come together.

In addition to the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1952, he received numerous other awards. In 1980, he was awarded the Alexander Hamilton Medal and in 1999 he was acknowledged with the Jewish Book Council Lifetime Literary Achievement Award.
