3.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 8 July 2013
This review is from: Former People: The Destruction of the Russian Aristocracy (Paperback)
This is a compelling book. It addresses the decimation and gradual erradication of an entire class of people in Russia. The tragedy is how greatly many of the upper class tried to fit in and welcome the changes of the revolution. Nevertheless they were uprooted, sent to gulags, tortured, imprisoned and murdered. This tremendous suffering was, for the most part, met with stoicism and true nobility. I wept several times...

My only quibble is that I found it hard to follow the cast of families and to work out which generation was which as there were errors or lacunae in the family trees.
