2019 marks the 150th year of one of the greatest novels ever written - Leo Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’. This classic work from Russia was first published in the book form in 1869.
Tolstoy took almost seven years to finish this epic work, and a Russian magazine named ‘Messenger serialized some portions of it during 1865-67. But the full novel came out as a book only in 1869. The story, woven around Napoleon’s invasion of Russia, covers a period of over fifteen years. The unique literary style and the historical context make ‘War and Peace’ a monumental work.
