    Fascinated by the history of Russia, I have read many books about this unique country and its leaders Among the generations of tsars who have shaped its history, the most extraordinary is without any doubt Peter the Great 1672 1725 While the book contains funny anecdotes, some depicting a man without manner, unable to use a knife and a fork in European court receptions, or being so drunk that he shot at Rubens paintings in London, just for fun, Henri Troyat details the biography and the complica [...]

    Very nice told story of Peter the Great.I like Henri Troyat rich language and deep research he did on all his books.Recommend this book to everyone who likes historical fiction

    An interesting book on the subject of a vile man In reality, too few sources are extant to really write a review of this brutal man.

    This is the second Troyat biography I ve read, the other being Ivan the Terrible I found it very readable and informative, though it would be much better if it had a map or three I also find it a stretch to be told what various indivuals were thinking at different specific moments, which seems to me to be beyond what can be known for certain Having read no other biographies of Peter the Great and knowing little about him before reading this, I can t say if this is one of the better ones, but it [...]

    Interesting note, Everything that Peter did was for the greater glory of Russia with little care for the impact of his policies on his people The people for the most part accepted their lot.
