Set during the invasion by Bonaparte, this novel closely follows the lives of a close knit group of friends during and after the war. The novel manages to enlarge the scope so as to capture the essence of a Napoleonic invasion on Russia. Tolstoy uses realism as his main prop and does not disappoint. Each character has been developed beautifully with a fast paced plot and the preparations for the war ahead is extremely well detailed; this is why this book features as one of the top 10 Leo Tolstoy books
