War and peace


War and peace, is a literary novel in the beginning of the nineteenth century, with the invasion of the French commander Napoleon Bonaparte the Russian lands, and with entering to Moscow and his withdrawal after the disappointment and failure in the face of the bitter Russian winter,the first Russian Tsar Alexander refused to surrender..

It is usually described as one of the two major Tolstoy antiques (the other is Anna Karenina), as well as it is one of the greatest world novels. "War and Peace" presented a new kind of fiction, with a large number of characters involved in a narrative plot, that novel has covered a great number of subjects that were referred to In the title of the novel like youth, marriage, age and death. Although often it is referred to as a "novel" nowadays, it broke many traditions of form in writing, making it not considered as a novel in its time.


The first draft of War and Peace was completed in 1863. While the printed version was completed, nearly one-third of the work was published in the Literary Journal under the title "1805". Tolstoy was not pleased with the conclusion, so he rewrote the entire novel between 1866 and 1869. This version was later published as a complete novel under the title of "War and Peace".

Tolstoy, however, didn’t distort the original manuscript, which was edited in Russia in 1983 and has since been translated separately from the well-known version into English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish and Korean. The first version is different from the latest version in many considerations, especially in its end.

The story tells the story of five aristocratic families - the Bazukhov, the Polkonski, the Rostov, the Coragin, and the Drogetskoy - and their personal lives with a historical link between 1805 and 1813, and as a main event it also talks about the Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812. As events continue, Tolstoy regularly deprives his characters Any freedom to make a valuable choice, and the role of history moving forward to determine happiness and tragedy alike.

Many characters of war and peace were based on real people known to Tolstoy himself. Nikolai Rostov and Maria Polkonskaya based on Tolstoy's memories of his father and mother, while Natasha was made according to Tolstoy's wife and brother-in-law, Pierre and Prince André are very similar to Tolstoy himself, and many commentators treated them as a second personal pronoun for the author.

Some characters are historical, and many novel chapters devoted specifically to the discussion of Tolstoy's interpretation of the military and historical role of the generals, Napoleon and Kutuzov.
In addition the subordination characters who are less important than the main characters in war and peace, either appear in one chapter or sometimes appears in an ephernal way. Few of them, such as Platon and Karataev, they are not really inferior to the evolution of characters. Karateev, for example, plays a crucial role in the maturity of Pierre after becoming a prisoner of war. Finally, we hope you enjoy this amazing novel.
