Abstract:

"Set against the sweeping panoply of Napoleon's invasion of Russia, War and Peace- presented here in the first new English translation in forty years-is often considered the greatest novel ever written. At its center are Pierre Bezukhov, searching for meaning in his life; cynical Prince Andrei, ennobled by wartime suffering; and Natasha Rostov, whose impulsiveness threatens to destroy her happiness. As Tolstoy follows the changing fortunes of his characters, he crafts a view of humanity that is both epic and intimate and that continues to define fiction at its most resplendent."--Publisher's website.

The monumental Russian classic reflects the life and times of Russian society during the Napoleonic War.
