«War and Peace» is a novel by the Russian author Leo Tolstoy, first published in 1869. The work is epic in scale and is regarded as one of the most important works of world literature. It is considered as Tolstoy’s finest literary achievement, along with his other major prose work, «Anna Karenina». Tolstoy himself, somewhat enigmatically, said of War and Peace that it was «not a novel, even less is it a poem, and still less a historical chronicle».
War and Peace delineates in graphic detail events surrounding the French invasion of Russia, and the impact of the Napoleonic era on Tsarist society, as seen through the eyes of five Russian aristocratic families.
