Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Enthralling . . . As fascinating as any novel and more so than most." The New York Times Book Review

The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Bestseller by the author of DREADNOUGHT.

Against the monumental canvas of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe and Russia unfolds the magnificent story of Peter the Great, one of the most extraordinary rulers in history. Impetuous and stubborn, generous and cruel, tender and unforgiving, a man of enormous energy and complexity, Peter the Great is brought fully to life in this exceptional biography.

Description:

Bibliography: p. [863]-867.
