From the Publisher:

The military genius of his age, Frederick the Great has always aroused extreme opinions. Some saw him as “the greatest man who ever lived,” while others have accused him of creating the Prussian ultra–nationalism that culminated in Hitler. But this paternalistic ruler, who once said he wanted nothing more than to be remembered as “Le Roi des Gueux”—The King of Beggars—was also a polymath of prodigious energy, whose intellectual prowess astounded 18th–century Europe. Judicious, well–researched, and wonderfully readable, David Fraser’s biography is set to become the standard life of this extraordinary man.

About the Author:

Sir David Fraser is one of Britain's most senior generals as well as the author of many books, including his bestselling Knight's Cross: A Life of Erwin Rommel and ten novels.
