Massie – In July 1991 nine skeletons were exhumed from a shallow mass grave near Ekaterinburg Siberia a few miles from the infamous cellar room where the last tsar and his family had been murderBones of the two younger Romanovs supposedly murdered with the rest of the family Was Anna Anderson celebrated for than sixty years in newspapers books and film really Grand Duchess Anastasia The Romanovs provides the answers describing in suspenseful detail the dramatic efforts to discover the truth Pulitzer Prize Romanovs The Final PDFEP. I read The Romanovs as part of my WW1 project I will say that I am normally a huge fan of Robert K Massie’s books having read the extraordinary biographies ‘Peter the Great’ and ‘Nicholas and Alexandra’In this book Massie some twenty years after Nicholas and Alexandra was written seeks to revise the last chapter of NA as new information came to light as part of Glasnost Massie corrects the record on how the Romanovs were killed and how their bodies were disposed of in that summer of 1918 some fifteen months after they were first imprisoned The book goes on further to discuss the endless Soviet investigations and refutes all the conspiracy theories around the executions and discredits all the imposters of the 20th century who claim they were a surviving RomanovThis book reads a little like Bugliosi’s ‘Assassination of President John F Kennedy’ The writing is excellent but in both books the assassination conspiracies are disproven and you come away knowing just a little about what happened but not enough to alter your perception of historyI felt the discussion around Lenin’s involvement in the assassination was interesting as well as the early section of the book which highlighted the search for the impromptu burial site near Yekaterinburg Siberia The family and a few loyal servants were executed in the basement of the Ipatiev House and uickly transported to a predetermined pit in the forest but the transport truck got bogged down in the mud making a mockery of the local Bolsheviks plan to properly dispose of the bodies It was partly a rush job because the Czech brigade and the Whites were uickly approaching the town As the opponents to the Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War the Whites were expected to liberate the Royal Family and did in fact arrive at the house just a few days after the executions 35 Stars Probably 4 stars for those who do not already have an understanding of the Romanov’s final days

I had hoped that this book would give an intimate look at the last days of the family and just how they got to where they were before they were killed The book did cover this very briefly but mostly it focused on the aftermath of finding the bones in the grave of debunking the imposters petty turf wars among the scientific community in their search for the truth and petty disagreements of the remaining family members of just who is really the head of the family now that the original family is dead It seems like most of those involved forgot what was really important the death of this family
