Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once
an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration
of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude
of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized
and equally memorable. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound
examination of the individual's place in the historical process, one
that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric
powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as The Iliad.
War and Peace was translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude.
