Tolstoy?s powerful semiautobiographical stories based on his time spent in the Russian army?the latest in our series of fresh new Tolstoy translations

In 1851, at the age of twenty-two, Tolstoy joined the Russian army. The four years he spent as a soldier were among the most significant in his life and inspired the tales collected here. In ?The Cossacks,? Tolstoy tells the story of Olenin, a cultured Russian whose experiences among the Cossack warriors of Central Asia leave him searching for a more authentic life. ?The Sevastopol Sketches? bring into stark relief the realities of military life during the Crimean War. And ?Hadji Murat? paints a portrait of a great leader torn apart by divided loyalties. In writing about individuals and societies in conflict, Tolstoy has penned some of the most brilliant stories about the nature of war.

Tolstoy is a master. I had decided that 2011 and 2012 would be the years I read "The Classics". His description of the hero as he first goes into the Caucasus Mountains is beyind incredible. It brought this old mountaineer to tears as I read it. Any book that can do that deserves every accolade.
