Editorial Reviews

He could do anything. Build a navy, an army...a whole new capital city. He was the boy tsar who became a giant. Tsar Peter I of Russia, known as Peter the Great, was great at almost everything...except fatherhood. NGC looks at how Peter the Great transformed Russia from an isolated and primitive borderland into an 18th century powerhouse, yet remained consumed by fears that his own son, Alexei Petrovich Romanov, was seeking to overthrow him. How did Peter rise to such magnificent power? And what fueled him to sentence his son to prison? NGC examines the facts behind the life, the dynasty and the empire of Peter the Great. (Warner Home Video)

NGC's icons of power series produced 4 of the best made historical docs I have ever seen. Wrath of the Tsar is part of this series is excellent for education. A lot of the early historical videos were dull, with dull music, and a dull narrator. Wrath of the Tsar contains the total opposite. The dramatic re-actments make it exciting to watch. The special effects make it entertaining, and the narrator talks with a voice that make the historical DVD great to listen to. This DVD is an GREAT video to show to a history class because it's tailored to keep it entertaining to students and last but not least, I learned so much history and information about Peter the Great that you will not get in a history book. GREAT WAY TO GET STUDENTS interested in history class!!!!

This is a very good video. Very factual with good acting and direction.

This video is a good compliment to Massie's book "Peter the Great: His Life and World" and the VHS movie "Peter the Great" 1994.
