Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy , usually referred to in English as Leo Tolstoy, was a Russian writer who is regarded as one of the greatest authors of all time. He received nominations for the Nobel Prize in Literature every year from 1902 to 1906 and for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1901, 1902, and 1909. That he never won is a major controversy.Source: Wikipedia
As a work of 1869 historical fiction, War and Peace showcases a Russia before, during, and after the invasion by Napoleon. Moreover, Tolstoy writes of the glory of epic struggle, the horror of man-to-man combat, and the loveliness of peace.
