Tired, so this will be short, but more on Russian history tomorrow night.
Rostov is back, feeling all that loves stuff was childish, and enjoying his popularity. Elder Rostov, the count, is hosting a banquet at the English club for Bagration, who is a hero for keeping his column/flank in formation (although we know he just didn't want to battle). Anna Mikhailovna whispers that Pierre's wife has been compromised by Dolokhov (does that behavior from either of them surprise us? Not me). So Pierre's being invited.
Much conjecture about the war and how the Russians could have lost the battle, and then the last bit about how sad it is that Andrei died and left his wife alone. Tragic.
