War and Peace

War and Peace Volume 2, Part 5, Chapter 17 Summary

  • And the dynamic duo is off to the races.
  • Dolokhov gives Anatole a little bachelor sendoff and they drive up to the doors of Marya Dmitrievna’s house.
  • But there...a giant footman blocks the gate and demands that they go inside and face music.
  • Anatole hesitates, but Dolokhov pulls him back, and they escape.
