Souvenirs d'Alexis Volkov (Memories of Alexei Volkov)

description:

A memoir by the personal valet of Empress Alexandra Fedorovna, 1910-1918.

unique features:

Volkov accompanied the imperial family into exile as far as Ekaterinburg, where he was imprisoned and narrowly escaped execution. His is the only first hand account of the murder of 11 imperial servants, including Mlle. Schneider and Countess Hendrikova.

in my opinion:

A core Romanov memoir, particularly pertaining to the imperial family's exile.
