War and Peace

Leo Tolstoy
Louise and Aylmer Maude and Amy Mandelker

Oxford World's Classics Hardback Collection

  • A beautiful edition of Tolstoy's epic masterpiece
  • Based on the famed Maudes' translation -- long seen as the finest available -- this edition is lightly updated to be even more readable, to restore passages in French, and to use the original Russian spelling of names
  • An illuminating introduction by Amy Mandelker considers the novel's literary and historical context, the nature of the work, and Tolstoy's artistic and philosophical aims
  • Includes lists of historical characters and the fictional families, a chronology of Tolstoy and of historical events in the novel, five maps, and Tolstoy's essay 'Some Words about War and Peace' in an Appendix
