A grand, romantic saga of two noble Russian families and a multitude of lives swept up in the violent tumult of the Napoleonic Wars, Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace is considered one of the preeminent literary works of all time. Tolstoy originally completed this novel in 1866, but it was not until years later—after the author had doubled the book's length with philosophical and historical meditations—that the great novel was published. More than half a century in the making, the result of extraordinary dedication and pains-taking research, here is Tolstoy's original version of this timeless classic, which never made it into print during the author's lifetime.

Now readers can enjoy the epic and unforgettable story as the novelist originally intended—with its subtly different characters, dialogue, and ending—and experi-ence anew the breathtaking masterpiece that has inspired love and devotion for generations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book #plumreview If viewing the most recent televised miniseries, please give the novel a chance. The adage that great books don't necessarily make great movies bears out as the book far supersedes anything from the tv version.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I may sound like a philistine, but I just couldn't get into it. I did finish it, but more out of just wanting to say I'd read it. I loved Anna K., and like the "society" parts of this book, but was bored to tears with the "war" parts.
