Volume I, Book II, Chapter XVII

Okay - shorthand for you theater people - I'm in tech. My apartment's a mess, I'm really tired, and luckily we have tomorrow night off. So, not much blogging going on, but I am reading the chapters.

Andrei in battle. His first thought is for his own glory. Frankly, all the soldiers in here seem interested in the glory of it. I guess that's honest. I wonder where T's pacifism is in this - maybe that was later. Either way, much about Bagration and how his mere presence just made the men be better, whether or not he knows what he's doing. Interesting meditation on leadership.

More tomorrow, but now I doze.
