Peter The Great

The story of the remarkable childhood and rule of Peter the Great, of his building of St Petersburg, his contempt for religion and his westernising way, the religious crisis as the Old Believers opposed him, and the revolt of the Cossack 'hetman' Mazeppa form the background to the 'Peter' chapter in RUSSKA.
