Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In July 1991, nine skeletons were exhumed from a shallow mass grave near Ekaterinburg, Siberia, a few miles from the infamous cellar room where the last tsar and his family had been murdered seventy-three years before. But were these the bones of the Romanovs? And if these were their remains, where were the bones of the two younger Romanovs supposedly murdered with the rest of the family? Was Anna Anderson, celebrated for more than sixty years in newspapers, books, and film, really Grand Duchess Anastasia? The Romanovs provides the answers, describing in suspenseful detail the dramatic efforts to discover the truth. Pulitzer Prize winner Robert K. Massie presents a colorful panorama of contemporary characters, illuminating the major scientific dispute between Russian experts and a team of Americans, whose findings, along with those of DNA scientists from Russia, America, and Great Britain, all contributed to solving one of the great mysteries of the twentieth century.

Heather G, October 23, 2014 (view all comments by Heather G)
The essential story of the 300-year-old empire and ultimate downfall of the Russian Romanov dynasty is gripping, if not essential reading for anyone looking to understand some key elements of the 20th Century, from the rise of the Bolsheviks and Communism, to the start of World War I and everything that followed. But it's not your dry history tome. Massie is a Russia expert and a lively and insightful chronicler of those lives and times. The Romanov family and all their everyday joys and foibles come alive on the page, and you can really understand the man who was Tsar, just plain old Nicholas. A fascinating portrait of a man who seemed to mostly want only to plant a garden, sail, and enjoy life with his five children, but was thrust into a role he was ill-prepared for and totally unsuited for, with ultimately disastrous consequences.
