The Caine Mutiny, published in 1951 by Herman Wouk, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that explores the moral complexities of military life during World War II. The novel is set aboard the USS Caine, a fictional minesweeper, and follows its crew as they navigate the dangerous waters of the Pacific and deal with the increasingly erratic behavior of their captain. The Caine Mutiny was adapted into a successful Broadway play in 1954 and a film later in the same year, in which Humphrey Bogart portrayed Captain Queeg.
