The standard Russian text of War and Peace is divided into four books (comprising fifteen parts) and an epilogue in two parts. Roughly the first half is concerned strictly with the fictional characters, whereas the latter parts, as well as the second part of the epilogue, increasingly consist of essays about the nature of war, power, history, and : Leo Tolstoy.

Question: "Does the Bible say anything about Russia in relation to the end times?" Answer: With Russia back in the news in a big way, many people are wondering if recent events in eastern Europe have anything to do with end-times prophecy—and, if so, how.

War and Peace: many stories, many lives War and Peace began as a domestic chronicle, but widened and deepened into an ambitious attempt to write the history of Russia.

The author has an intimate knowledge of Russia, going back in personal experience toon which to base his exploration of the Russian enigma. He studies her history and the record of the Russian conditioning toward collectivism, which ensued as social collapse.

This rather than Marxism brought about Bolshevism. He discusses the religious aspects, the multinationality, the attitudes. Tolstoy overstates a comparison between Kutuzov's recognition of reality and Napoleon's"artificial phantasm of life" to show how Russia's ultimate victory will come about.

Not only does Bonaparte have no control over the events of the battle, but his megalomania prevents him from understanding the actual insignificance of his role. As he concludes, “we were entering a new confrontational era, a hot peace.” Such is the situation the United States now faces with Mr.
