Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) is the author of War and Peace, Anna Karenina, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Family Happiness, and other classics of Russian literature. Fascinating to see a different version of a book I've read dozens of times since I was 13 years old. Every time I read it a new aspect of Tolstoy's utter genius strikes me and I reread the passage and marvel. Like Shakespeare, Tolstoy's 'War & Peace' never gets old. Recommended.

Tolstoy's central insights about war include these: - Despite the best laid plans of military or regiment commanders, battles unfold on the front lines as no one could have predicted or choreographed - Heroism and military honours are mostly undeserved; the truth of a battle is nowhere to be found in the retelling's which are after-the-fact stories we make up - Despite.

Epic historical novel by Leo Tolstoy, originally published as Voyna i mir in 1865-69. This panoramic study of early 19th-century Russian society, noted for its mastery of realistic detail and variety of psychological analysis, is generally regarded as one of the world's greatest novels. War and Peace is primarily concerned with the histories of five aristocratic families--particularly the Bezukhovs, the Bolkonskys, and the Rostovs--the members of which are portrayed against a vivid background of Russian social life during the war against Napoleon (1805-14). The theme of war, however, is subordinate to the story of family existence, which involves Tolstoy's optimistic belief in the life-asserting pattern of human existence. The heroine, Natasha Rostova, for example, reaches her greatest fulfillment through her marriage to Pierre Bezukhov and her motherhood. The novel also sets forth a theory of history, concluding that there is a minimum of free choice; all is ruled by an inexorable historical determinism.
