For exampe, chapter 19 begins:

"On the twenty-fourth of August the battle of the Shevardino Redoubt was fought, on the twenty-fifth not a shot was fired by either side, and on the twenty-sixth the battle of Borodino itself took place."

But, the Battle of Borodino was fought on 7 September 1812.

This discrepancy is resolved if Tolstoy uses Julian dates:

26 Aug 1812 (Julian) = 7 Sep 1812 (Gregorian)
