Excerpts of imperial family members’ letters and diaries from the life and reign of Nicholas II. Emphasis on Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra. (Email for cover photo of paperback edition.)
Draws materials from a wide range of sources, including: Empress Marie Fyodorovna, the siblings and children of Nicholas II, Grand Duke Aleksander Mikhailovich, Grand Duke Konstantine Konstantinovich, Queen Victoria, King George V, Kaiser Wilhelm II, and others.
in my opinion:
Readers should be aware that these diaries and letters are NOT reproduced verbatim. The editors explain in their introduction that they have made cuts for content, and occasionally altered the chronology without indicating they've done so, in order to fit their view of events. Otherwise, a fascinating glimpse into the inner life of royalty, in their own words.
