A definitive biography of Nicholas II. Radzinsky uses personal diaries of the Tsar and his family, classified archives, and countless interviews to recreate the life and tragic death of one of Europe's most powerful dynasties. And he does so with eloquent writing and attentive detail. The reader can view the Tsar and his family and see inside the mysterious empire of the Romanovs as an audience member of a historical play. Radzinsky's special talent is in deducing the motives of both heroes and villains with which he explains the events that changed world history. Perhaps more melodratic at times than necessary, this book still has no equal in accuracy.

This is a "light to medium" puzzle book. Not so easy you get bored but not so hard you get frustrated. I like it more as a vocabulary stimulant than anything else. Different puzzle authors so there is variation and the same words don't reoccur frequently. If you're the type that likes them so hard you need a dictionary and several historical texts for assists then this is not for you. If you like to keep your mind alert and work fairly quickly, this is the book for you. This is the second in the series I've worked. My sister perused my first book and thought it looked pretty good. Ordered her this one for Christmas.

Interesting account of the religious persecution in Europe during WW2, through a child's eyes.
