    He visited battlefields, read history books on the Napoleonic Warsand drew on real historical events to create a novel of living history. A perfectionist, Tolstoy insisted on getting the introduction right before moving on. Excluded are self-publishedprinted-on-demandvanity works, unpublished novels like Henry Darger 's, novel sequences like the Chronicles of Barsetshirenovel cycles such as those set in the James Bond universe, and record-grabbing stunts written solely for the title of the longest work. General Kutuzov leads the Russian troops back toward Moscow, which the French have finally abandoned after their defeat at Borodino. During her near-nervous breakdown, Pierre emerges as her comforter and their love is implied. Petya Pyotr Ilyich at nine is the youngest; like his brother, he is impetuous and eager to join the army when of age.

    Nikolai and Maria then move to Bald Hills with his mother and Sonya, whom he supports for the rest of their lives. Nikolai gambles and socializes with his officer, Vasily Dmitrich Denisov, and befriends the ruthless and perhaps psychopathic Fyodor Ivanovich Dolokhov. The next morning Pierre disappears and no one in his household sees him again until after the occupation of Moscow. It'll help you understand Russia today. The generals hear the decision and their council is like a funeral meeting.

    His grandparents and their friends were the models for many of the main characters; his great-grandparents would have been of the generation of Prince Vassily or Count Ilya Rostov. Napoleon himself is the main character in this section, and the novel presents him in vivid detail, both personally and as both a thinker and would-be strategist. Pierre and Natasha meet again. The manner in which Count Tolstoy conducts his treatise is innovative and original.

War and peace book

Nikolay asks the tsar for Denisov's pardon and witnesses the meeting between Napoleon and Alexander, a meeting between the old and new orders of government. He is very attracted to Natasha and determined to seduce her, and conspires with his sister to do so. Petersburg, life in the higher social circles continues almost unaffected by the occupation of Moscow.

He is nearly crushed by the throngs in his effort. Many of Tolstoy's characters were based on real people. Andrew comes home and rejects Natasha for her involvement with Anatole.

Natasha learns from Pierre of Anatole's marriage. This is one of the most, if not the most profound literary work ever". Tolstoy read as many books about the Napoleonic Wars as he could. Natasha writes to Princess Maria, Andrei's sister, breaking off her engagement.

7 Reasons You Should Give 'War and Peace' A Chance

While visiting family in Moscow inTolstoy read his relatives sections of his work in progress. Prince Andrei Nikolayevich Bolkonsky : A strong but skeptical, thoughtful and philosophical aide-de-camp in the Napoleonic Wars. Vyazemsky among them were accusing Tolstoy of consciously distorting history, desecrating the "patriotic feelings of our fathers" and ridiculing dvoryanstvo.

War and Peace

His grandparents and their friends were the models for many of the main characters; his great-grandparents would have been of the generation of Prince Vassily or Count Ilya Rostov. The six years Tolstoy toiled away on War and Peace taxed both his mind and body.

Pierre is reunited with Natasha, while the victorious Russians rebuild Moscow. Book Four[ edit ] The Rostovs have waited until the last minute to abandon Moscow, even after it became clear that Kutuzov has retreated past Moscow and Muscovites are being given contradictory instructions on how to either flee or fight.

At the last moment, Sonya discovers her plans to elope and foils them. If I had to choose a favorite character it would be Prince Andrei Bolkonsky. He tells Pierre that his pride will not allow him to renew his proposal.

A new era begins to disclose itself with Russia's entrance into international leadership. In Napoleon invades Russia, forcing Alexander to declare war.“War and Peace,” like all of Count Tolstoi’s works, is a mighty protest against war.

There is no arguing in it about the waste, and the demoralization, and the cruelty, and the unmanliness of it, but, like all Russian argument, it is by vivid pictures such as no one can resist.
