The Race to Save the Romanovs:The Truth Behind the Secret Plans to Rescue the Russian Imperial Family

Helen Rappaport

The murder of the Romanovs in July 1918 horrified the world. While the assassination of the Russian Imperial Family has received much attention, the various plots and behind-the-scenes plans to save the family by their royal relatives, other governments, and Russian monarchists loyal to the Tsar has never been investigated. Published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the massacre, the author of The Romanov Sisters (2014) draws on archives in the U.S., Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom to uncover how everything from political rivalries to sickness to bad weather played a role in their tragic demise.
