Here’s The New York Times‘ Sunday Book Review of Lieven’s Russia Against Napoleon, which my brother sent me yesterday.  Looks very promising–and anything which critiques Tolstoy I look upon with a favorable eye.  I love War and Peace, and have read it several times–except for Book IV, which lays out his philosophy of history.  It’s been so long that I can’t remember the details, except that it manages to be complex and wrong at the same time.  Anyway, check out the review.
