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. History doesn’t get more interesting than the story of the Romanovs.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A wonderful introduction to this era in Russian history and a great read for those already familiar with it.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The tragic Romanovs, last imperial family of Russia, have long held tremendous fascination. The interest generated by this family is intense…This well-researched and well-annotated book provides information not only on the history of these famous figures but also on the Russian people living at the time and on the social conditions that contributed to the family’s demise…A sobering work, and the account of the discovery of their bones and the aftermath is at once fascinating and distressing.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Compulsively readable, Fleming’s artful work of narrative history is splendidly researched and documented. For readers who regard history as dull, Fleming’s extraordinary book is proof positive that, on the contrary, it is endlessly fascinating, absorbing as any novel, and the stuff of an altogether memorable reading experience.”
