The tragic, compelling story of the last Tsar and his family Nicholas & Alexandra is the internationally famous biography from Pulitzer prize-winner Robert Massie. Massie shows conclusively how the personal curse of the young heir's haemophilia, and the decisive influence it brought Rasputin, became fatally linked with the collapse of Imperial Russia. As an engrossing account of one of the century's most dramatic episodes - and an intimate portrait of two people caught at the centre of a maelstrom - Nicholas & Alexandra is unlikely ever to be surpassed. 'The story of the last Tsar has probably never been so powerfully - and so accurately - told' Guardian

Our customer reviews

I found this book utterly engrossing. My prior knowledge of the players in the fall of the Russian Empire was basic at best, but Massie manages to draw a complex series of historical and political events together with a great love story and the tale of one family and their personal triumphs and tragedies. The sense of impending doom in each fateful decision and the confluence of circumstance is painful. This book is a non-fiction that reads as well as any great novel! Five more
