The tragic, compelling story of the last Tsar and his family
Nicholas & Alexandra is the internationally famous biography from Pulitzer prize-winner Robert Massie. Massie shows conclusively how the personal curse of the young heir's haemophilia, and the decisive influence it brought Rasputin, became fatally linked with the collapse of Imperial Russia. As an engrossing account of one of the century's most dramatic episodes ' and an intimate portrait of two people caught at the centre of a maelstrom ' Nicholas & Alexandra is unlikely ever to be surpassed.
