Robert K Massie’s account of the Russian Empire’s final days sympathetically unfolds the tragedy of the Romanovs. Drawing on diaries, letters and memoirs, it tells the story of the Tsar’s political naïveté and his son’s haemophilia, which allowed the charismatic Rasputin to secure a position of influence with the Empress. First published in 1967, the book now includes an introduction in which the Pulitzer-winning author looks back at its genesis and reception during the Cold War.
