Overview

Conspiracy and murder, imprisonment, torture, flight, and abduction punctuate the story of the Romanovs, Russia's last imperial dynasty, during their last century. In The Flight of the Romanovs, the most comprehensive history of the Romanov Family to date, John Curtis Perry and Constantine Pleshhakov tell a tale of glittering sadness, of unfulfilled expectations and squandered opportunities.

Perry and Pleshshakov use a wealth of previously untapped sources, including unpublished diaries of many of the principle characters, interviews with people who knew them well, and never before published photographs to create a history of a family and a time> The Flight of the Romanovs recounts the story of this fascinating family in vivid detail, from the youth of the future tsar Alexander III in the 1860s until the death of hi daughter Olga Alexandrovna the last grand duchess in 1960. Along the way we learn of the relationships between Alexander III and his children, the conspiracy against Rasputin, Grand Duke Dmitri's affair with Coco Chanel, the hostile behavior of the House of Windsor toward the Romanovs and the war between the Romanovs and various secret services.
