War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy,  Henry Gifford,  Aylmer Maude,  Louise Maude Plot Summary - This book is too great to rotate around the lives of some handful of characters. So, let's prod along and talk about the lives of 100 thousand characters.

Tolstoy's wife should get a major recognition for getting this work published as she copied the original manuscript by hand which contained some 460,000 Russian and French words.

She ended up copying the manuscript 7 times before it got published!
