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

eventual uprising—Fleming offers up a fascinating portrait. History doesn’t get
more interesting than the story of the Romanovs. Download and start listening now!
