Description

Tolstoy’s beguiling masterpiece entwines love, death and determinism with Russia’s war with Napoleon and its effects on those swept up by the terror it brings. Following the rise and fall of some of society’s most influential families, this truthful and poignant epic is as relevant today as ever.
