War and Peace

War and Peace

by Leo Tolstoy

War and Peace Volume 4, Part 2, Chapter 5 Summary

  • It’s October 5. Battle day. Kutuzov gets up, prays for victory, and goes outside.
  • He sees...nothing at all. Nothing has been prepared, no one is marching anywhere, soldiers are just hanging out.
  • Kutuzov loses it and screams at everyone.
  • The generals gather, apologize, and say that they’ll just try to do the attack the next day. Mulligan, we guess.
