The people of Russia from all classes of society stand up united against the enemy. Napoleon's armies take Moscow only after Russians burned the entire city. Napoleon cannot spend the coldest winter in the old Russian capital, even in it's fortress - Kremlin. Russians besiege the invaders in Moscow by sealing all roads and cutting supplies. Napoleon's massive army becomes exhausted, and many of his troops are deserting to Russians for survival. Napoleon gets defeated after causing terrible losses to both sides. Peace comes at a very high price. Russian society is changed by the war. Pierre Bezukhov returns from the war a mature man. He separates from his manipulative wife Helene.
