Peter the Great is the story of one man's determination to make his country the greatest in the world. Born in 1729, Peter was the son of a peasant farmer turned Czarist general. After serving in the army and becoming a successful bureaucrat, he was appointed governor of Moscow in 1755. Under his leadership, Moscow became a metropolis of great beauty and wealth. Peter's desire to make Russia a superpower led to many ambitious projects, including the construction of a new capital city, St. Petersburg, and the modernization of the Russian army. But Peter's greatest achievement was his transformation of Russia into a modern, secular society.; 8vo; 384 pages; TBC.
