CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Robert K. Massie has written a richly textured and gripping chronicle of the personal and national rivalries that led to the twentieth century's first great arms race. Massie brings to vivid life, such historical figures as the single-minded Admiral von Tirpitz, the young, ambitious, Winston Churchill, the ruthless, sycophantic Chancellor Bernhard von Bulow, and many others. Their story, and the story of the era, filled with misunderstandings, missed opportunities, and events leading to unintended conclusions, unfolds like a Greek tratedy in his powerful narrative. Intimately human and dramatic, DREADNOUGHT is history at its most riveting.

Synopsis:

From the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Nicholas and Alexandra and Peter the Great--a grand, sweeping chronicle of the coming of World War I. Massie's masterwork is a gripping narrative that brilliantly illuminates the personal rivalries and twisted ambitions that plunged Europe into a war of unprecedented carnage. 16 pages of photographs; maps.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [915]-921) and index.
