Who failed the Romanovs?
The murder of the Romanov family in July, 1918 horrified the world, but what has never come to light are the plots and plans behind the scenes to save the family―by royal relatives, other governments, and Russian monarchists—and why they failed.
Helen Rappaport reveals that the question of asylum for the Tsar and his family presented enormous political and logistical challenges at a time when Europe was still at war. She refutes the popular claim that fault lies with King George V, and contends that responsibility for failing the Romanovs must be equally shared.
Like a modern day detective, Rappaport draws on new and never-before-seen sources to create a powerful account of near misses and close calls with a heartbreaking conclusion.
