Amazing translation that does justice to Tolstoy,
This review is from: War and Peace (Penguin Classics) (Mass Market Paperback)
I've read several versions of W & P, and this is by far the best translation I've read. Tolstoy's wit, compassion, and, above all, wisdom are rendered so perfectly that at times I was moved to tears.
By the way, Tolstoy should be compulsory reading for all those who presume to lead us into fruitless wars. His argument on why guerilla fighters will always win against large, invading armies is particularly compelling and timely.
