File on the Tsar

description:

A thoroughly researched investigation into an alternative theory about the fate of the Romanovs.
 
A revised edition was published in 2002. 

unique features:

At the time, the first critical appraisal of the Sokolov investigation into the Romanov murders.

similar to:

Fate of the Romanovs

in my opinion:

Though their research was groundbreaking in its day, the discovery of imperial remains in Koptyaki forest and subsequent DNA tests have contradicted Summers and Mangold's survival theories.

 
Still a worthwhile read in spite of its flaws.
