Catherine the Great by Robert K Massie

A masterpiece of narrative biography, this is the story of an obscure German princess who traveled to Russia at age 14 and rose to become one of the most remarkable, powerful and captivating women in history. There are few stories in history richer than that of Catherine the Great and thanks to this superbly told story, an eternally fascinating woman is returned to life.
