About the Author
Born in Russia in 1828, Leo Tolstoy grew up to become a novelist, short story writer, essayist, playwright and philosopher.
A master of realistic fiction he had little interest in academics when he was young. in 1851 he enlisted himself in the Russian army and served in the Crimean War (1854-1856). He records his experience in Sevastopol Stories (1855). Tolstoy produced an autobiographical novel, Childhood (1852), followed by Boyhood (1854) and Youth (1857) which earned him literary acclaim.
War and Peace (1865-1869) and Anna Karenina (1875-1877) remain two of his greatest novels. in his short autobiographical story, a Confession (1882), Tolstoy reflects on his mid-life existential crisis. the Death of Ivan Ilyich (1886) and What is it to Be Done led to his excommunication from the Russian Orthodox Church in 1901 for a radical anarcho-pacifist Christian philosophy. the Kingdom of God is Within You expresses his ideas on non-violent resistance.
In the last few days of his life, while his health was deteriorating, he separated from his wife and left home. He died of pneumonia at a train station in 1910, at the age of 82.

This book is a masterpiece on its own.
The reader must have minimum knowledge of the Napoleon era to understand the book completely.
It is a great read for a affordable price
Every one must buy it .
Translation is by Maude Aylmer which is considered the best and project Gutenberg also has that same version. Delivery of the book was on 4th day.
Surely ranks among the top five novels of European literature.
Its breadth and depth and horizon takes it ahead of even Resurrection, which can be seen as the best of Tolstoy.
This novel puts other war based novels like For whom the bell tolls, in the shade.
And still at the end the novel is a social tome.
Even Clausewitz might envy the detail that Tolstoy brings to the depiction of the Emperor on the battlefield.
