  War and Peace War and Peace is arguable the most important book written in modern era. Tolstoy's grasp of human need,interaction, character development and the beauty of his descriptive passages is unmatched. How one man can accurately describe the inner thoughts of so many diverse characters is almost incomprehensible/5(). I came across a very interesting volume in a 2nd hand bookstore called WAR AND PEACE IN SOUTH AFRICA by Dr. Paul Butterfield. Half of it was the letters of Philip Anstruther* and the second half (or more) were the memoirs/diary/journal of Edward Essex.
