Summary

Book 01: 1805, War and Peace (Russian: , Voyna i mir; in original orthography: , Voyna i mir) is an epic novel by Leo Tolstoy, first published from 1865 to 1869 in Russki Vestnik, which tells the story of Russian society during the Napoleonic Era. It is usually described as one of Tolstoys two major masterpieces (the other being Anna Karenina) as well as one of the worlds greatest novels.War and Peace offered a new kind of fiction, with a great many characters caught up in a plot that covered nothing less than the grand subjects indicated by the title, combined with the equally large topics of youth, age and marriage. While today it is considered a novel, it broke so many novelistic conventions of its day that many critics of Tolstoys time did not consider it as such. Tolstoy himself considered Anna Karenina (1878) to be his first attempt at a novel in the European sense.Note: The novel is split up in 17 books. This is the recording of book one, which covers events in the year 1805.
