Hailed as one of the greatest novels of all time and a classic of world
literature, War and Peace unfolds in the early nineteenth century during the
turbulent years of the Napoleonic invasion of Russia. Tolstoy's epic ranges
from stirring depictions of historical events to intimate portraits of family
life, moving between public spectacles and private lives to offer a tale of
both panoramic scope and closely observed detail. From the breathless
excitement of 16-year-old Natasha Rostov's first ball, to Prince Andrei
Bolkonsky's epiphany on the battlefield at Austerlitz, the novel abounds in
memorable incidents, particularly those involving Pierre Bezukhov. A seeker
after moral and spiritual truths, Pierre and his search for life's deeper
meaning stand at the heart of this monumental book. A tale of strivers in a
world fraught with conflict, social and political change, and spiritual
confusion, Tolstoy's magnificent work continues to entertain, enlighten, and
inspire readers around the world.
