This is a really good historical book I recently finished reading. I get the impression that few people really know much about the demise of the Russian Tsar Nicholas 2 some time after the October Revolution and they probably are vaguely aware of the story through the ‘Ra ra Rasputin’ Boney M song and they may of heard of Princess Anastasia through all the conspiracy theories. Those with a deeper understanding of the time around the Russian Revolution have probably watched ‘Doctor Zhivago’………
This book is really about the events leading up to the removal of the Tsar from power and then the long period of captivity along with the rest of his immediate Romanov Family. If that was all the book was about it might not have been all that great but in fact it goes much much wider than this and without doubt that is what I liked about it.
The inspiration for bashing out this WheelieBlog came whilst I was reading an excellent article written by Philip Ryland in the Investors Chronicle from 16th August 2019 (the one with the Chameleon/Lizard thing on the cover) entitled ‘Debt by any other Name’ and starting on page 33.
If you have access to the magazine in whichever format, I suggest you have a good read of it and perhaps it is best to read my (hopefully simple) blog first and I also suggest reading these excellent Guest Blogs by Justin Scarborough which are particularly useful if you need to brush up on basic understanding of Accounts (this is to Part 2 and there is a link inside it at the top to Part 1):
