A stunning clothbound Hardcover Classics edition of Tolstoy’s great novel, one of the undisputed masterpieces of world literature

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read At a glittering society party in St

Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war

Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon’s army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever

The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey, and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants, to soldiers and Napoleon himself

In War and Peace, Tolstoy entwines grand themes—conflict and love, birth and death, free will and fate—with unforgettable scenes of nineteenth-century Russia, to create a magnificent epic of human life in all its imperfection and grandeur
