War and Peace
This epic work of historical fiction chronicles the French Emperor Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in the early 1800s. Widely considered to be one of the greatest books ever written, it is extraordinarily detailed and complex.
The reader is introduced to the events leading up to the invasion through the eyes of five prominent families of the Russian aristocracy, introduced at a dinner party in St. Petersburg. The year is 1805, and war is brewing in Western Europe, as Napoleon conquers countries one after the other. The fear among the aristocracy is growing, and the interplay among the noble families is as much a theme of the novel as the historical setting of the war.
