(Title in Russian: Августейшие Сестры Милосердия)

unique features:

Previously unpublished documents, memoirs, and photographs. Includes recollections of wounded officers hospitalized at the Catherine Palace lazaret, as well as abstracts from the diary of Father Beliaev, father superior of Fedorovsky Catherdral at Tsarskoye Selo. Excerpts from the diaries and letters of the imperial children.

in my opinion:

A nicely made volume, with a handful of rare photos. Primarily text, so not ideal for non-Russian speakers.
