Frederick the Great, Paperback Book

Description

This title is presented with an Introduction by Kate Williams.

Frederick II of Prussia attempted to escape his authoritarian father as a boy, but went on to become one of history's greatest rulers.

He loved the flute, and devoted hours of study to the arts and French literature, forming a long-lasting but turbulent friendship with Voltaire.

He was a military genius and enlarged the borders of his empire, but he also promoted religious tolerance, economic reform and laid the foundation for a united Germany.

Nancy Mitford brings all these contradictions and achievements to sparkling life in an fascinating, intimate biography.
