I really enjoyed reading Massie's work and it's great reading everyone else's thoughts on the book. I have written a review of Catherine the Great for my royal history website

I have several of his books including Dreadnought and I just can't get through some of them.

Oh it was a good read and its sequel Castles of Steel was also fascinating.

I have to try Dreadnought again. I still have it.  I'll see if I can get going and stay with it.

I liked both books, but then, I am somewhat of a naval history buff.
