Nikolai II

description:

A year-by-year biography, illustrated with photos of Nicholas, his family, possessions, and imperial Russia.

unique features:

A handful of rarely seen photos, such as the Borki train wreck, private rooms of the Winter Palace, and Tsesarevich Nikolai Aleksandrovich (Nixa) and the infant Aleksander Aleksandrovich on their deathbeds.

similar to:

Nicholas Romanov: Life and Death
Romanovs: Love, Power & Tragedy

in my opinion:

A nice complementary volume to Romanovs: Love, Power, and Tragedy, though the photographs are significantly smaller.
