SummaryAdd a Summary
This translation of War and Peace gives life to one of the best pieces of literature written by Leo Tolstoy. Anthony Briggs does a great job choosing words to convey what is being said, and nothing is vague or hard to understand. This is by far the easiest to read and understand copy of War and Peace that I have come across.
