Karl XII's levnad (Frans G. Bengtsson) pdf, epub, doc

Colorful but frustrating biography of Charles XII, the Swedish warrior-king who defied far superior Russian/Polish/Saxon forces in the Great Northern War before losing disastrously at Poltava. Bengtsson's writing is lively, humorous and richly detailed, yet there's a disconnect between his style and subject. Bengtsson views Charles as a noble paragon of manly virtue. But he comes off to this cynical, non-Swedish 21st Century reader as a reckless adventurer who picked needlessly fights with his neighbors, committed grievous strategic errors (especially his pointless war with Poland) that overwhelmed his tactical brilliance and demoted his country into a second rate power.
