Аннотация к книге War And Peace. Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war. 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. At a glittering society party in St. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon’s army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever.
