    Product Description

    Product Description

    Against a monumental backdrop of fabulous splendour, intrigue and barbaric cruelty, unfolds a powerful drama of passion and history. This is the story of the Romanovs, from the Tsar who brought Russia from darkness into light, to one of the greatest female rulers in history, and ultimately to the death-marked royals who watched their empire crumble.

    PETER THE GREAT: Crowned at the age of 10, Peter embodied the greatest strengths and weaknesses of Russia while being at the very forefront of her development.

    CATHERINE THE GREAT: In 1762, Catherine rode out of St Petersburg at the head of an army to arrest her husband. Three months later, at the age of just 33, she became sole empress of the largest empire on earth.

    NICHOLAS AND ALEXANDRA: The story of Nicholas's political naivete, Alexandra's obsession with the corrupt mystic Rasputin, and little Alexis's brave struggle with haemophilia.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this set as an introduction to Russian history. It is detailed but rarely gets bogged down in it, and the asides on concurrent events such as the French Revolution are really helpful in themselves.
    It is amazing to think Massie has some of the characters own memoirs to draw on - I can't think of an English/British monarch who helped their biographers so much.

    I have read most of Mr Massie's books and I find him enthralling. He writes history like a thriller, un-puttable down-able reads.

    The boxed set is an unbelievable bargain Warning: The Romanovs were as mad as hats!

    Superb in all ways! Research, insight, compassion mixed with self interest and delusion. I sincerely recommend this splendid series to all - lest history repeat itself.

    Very well written. History told almost as a novel. I highly recommend this set to anyone interested in the history of Russia as it developed from the 16th to the 20th century.
