Tolstoy's epic story of a nation plagued by the ravages of war is a dazzling achievement, both a social and historical portrayal of the early 1800s and of Napoleon's invasion of Russia, and a deeply personal novel. Centring around the joys and misfortunes of the Rostov family, Tolstoy conjures up a myriad of colourful and widely contrasting characters whose emotions and ideals illuminate this remarkable period. The magnificent battle scenes add depth and scope to one of the greatest works of literature.
