Tolstoy gave the Maude translation his seal of approval.
It is my favorite, and it is available free at Project Gutenberg. There is a new revision of the Maude translation, by Amy Mandelkar, published in Yes, I want this one, too.
French passages are restored, Anglicization of Russian names removed, and outmoded expressions updated. The Anthony Briggs translation To get near the unconstrained flow of the original, ordinariness needs to be infused into the translation.
The Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translation, This husband-and-wife team, Pevear an American and Volokhonsky a Russian, live in France, and they began working together on Russian translations when Pevear was reading The Brothers Karamazov and Volokhonsky noticed some inadequacies in the translation.
Volokhonsky does the original literal translation, and Pevear polishes it. Among its many unforgettable characters is Prince Andrey Bolkonsky, a proud, dashing man who, despising the artifice of high society, joins the army to achieve glory.

Both an intimate study of individual passions and an epic history of Russia and its people, War and Peace is nothing more or less than a complete portrait of human existence. Community Reviews Sign up or Log in to rate this book and submit a review.

He spoke in that refined French in which our grandfathers not only spoke but thought, and with the gentle, patronizing intonation natural to a man of importance who had grown old in society and at court.
He went up to Anna Pavlovna, kissed her hand, presenting to her his bald, scented, and shining head, and complacently seated himself on the sofa. Can one be calm in times like these if one has any feeling?
