Catherine the Great : Portrait of a Woman, Paperback / softback Book

Catherine the Great : Portrait of a Woman Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The fascinating true story behind HBO's Catherine the Great starring Dame Helen Mirren as Catherine the Great.

Born into a minor noble family, Catherine transformed herself into empress of Russia by sheer determination.

For thirty-four years, the government, foreign policy, cultural development and welfare of the Russian people were in her hands.

She dealt with domestic rebellion, foreign wars and the tidal wave of political change and violence churned up by the French Revolution.

Robert K. Massie brings an eternally fascinating woman together with her family, friends, ministers, generals, lovers and enemies - vividly and triumphantly to life.

History offers few stories richer than that of Catherine the Great.
