Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of Imperial Russia


From the publisher:
Here is the riveting story of the Russian Revolution as it unfolded. When Russia’s last tsar, Nicholas II, inherited the throne in 1894, he was unprepared to do so. With their four daughters (including Anastasia) and only son, a hemophiliac, Nicholas and his reclusive wife, Alexandra, buried their heads in the sand, living a life of opulence as World War I raged outside their door and political unrest grew.

Deftly maneuvering between the lives of the Romanovs and the plight of Russia’s peasants—and their eventual uprising—Fleming offers up a fascinating portrait, complete with inserts featuring period photographs and compelling primary-source material that brings it all to life. History doesn’t get more interesting than the story of the Romanovs. 

Illustrated with 73 black & white photos, plus maps, charts, and family tree. 

unique features:

Impeccable research, backed up with ample source notes. Uses primary sources not only regarding the Romanovs themselves, but also to provide a  glimpse into everyday life for Russians beyond the palace gates.

Nicholas & Alexandra

in my opinion:

No other non-fiction treatment of the Romanovs for children or young adults comes close. I wish this book had been around when I was twelve years old.
