War and Peace


by Leo Tolstoy

War and Peace Volume 4, Part 4, Chapter 8 Summary

  • You’d think that under such horrible conditions the Russian soldiers would be all miserable and depressed. But no, they’re actually pretty happy.
  • We get a little scene between some characters we’ll only see for the next couple of chapters.
  • They’re trying to warm up by a campfire, telling some war stories and legends about how French corpses don’t decompose.
