War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

  Often called the greatest novel ever written, “War and Peace” is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy’s genius is seen clearly in the multitude of fully realized and equally memorable characters that populate this massive chronicle.
  Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual’s place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed “War and Peace” in the same category as the “Iliad”: “To read him… is to find one’s way home… to everything within us that is fundamental and sane.”
