Abstract:

The collapse of the Soviet Union revealed, among many other things, a hidden wealth of archival documents relating to the imprisonment and murder of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. From sources both close to the Imperial Family as well as from their captors, these materials have enabled a new examination of one the pivotal events of the twentieth century and the many controversies that surround it. This book revises many long-held beliefs about the Romanovs' final months. This account includes: surprising evidence that Anastasia may, indeed, have survived; diary entries made by Nicholas and Alexandra during their captivity; revelations of how the Romanovs were betrayed by trusted servants; and statements from admitted participants in the murders.--From publisher description.
