War and Peace


by Leo Tolstoy

War and Peace Volume 3, Part 3, Chapter 4 Summary

  • Basically this chapter is just another rehash of the we-have-to-abandon-Moscow theme, but this time as seen through the eyes of a little girl who lives in the cottage where Kutuzov is quartered. It’s hard to know why this is here – maybe just to give us an example of the whole universal history concept?
  • But yeah, Kutuzov finally announces out loud that Moscow will be abandoned.
