The Complete Wartime Correspondence of Tsar Nicholas II and the Empress Alexandra
By

Rating
Nicholas and his German-born wife Alexandra generally used English in writing to each other. This edition of their letters and telegrams, plus English translations of the few telegrams in Russian. The enormous love the couple shared against the backdrop of a bloody war and the approaching end of the Russian empire is clear. Alexandra offers extensive commentary on hospitals and the wounded (she was a volunteer nurse). Nicholas II reports on the military and the war effort. The growing influence of Rasputin is also thoroughly documented in these texts. The reader sees in detail the crises that led to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the collapse of the tsarist regime. This book should be of interest to all students of late Imperial Russia and World War I and those interested in the Romanovs.
