ANSWER: War and Peace

About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 25 January 2024

Leo Tolstoy, following his 1859 masterpiece “War and Peace,” intended to write a sequel centered on the Decembrists, who were primarily veterans of the Napoleonic Wars. “War and Peace” is celebrated for its intricate portrayal of Russian life against the backdrop of the Napoleonic era, and it concludes with certain characters showing inclinations towards involvement in the Decembrist revolt. This uprising in 1825, led by Russian officers, was a failed attempt to overthrow Tsar Nicholas I, driven by a push for political change. Although Tolstoy planned to continue the epic narrative of “War and Peace” into this significant historical chapter, the sequel focusing on the Decembrists was never realized, leaving “War and Peace” as a standalone epic deeply embedded in the turbulence and transformation of its era.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 25 January 2024

Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.

Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.

Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
