Read full description of the books:
I read this a long time ago, but had to pull it off the shelf for the book I'm finishing writing; Time Patrol: Ides of March, because one of the six missions in my book is on 15 March 1917. The day Nicholas II abdicated. This book is an extraordinarily detailed account of how the events unfolded. Some don't believe the author's claim that the execution of the family was ordered by Siberian Bolsheviks, but new evidence supports that.
While I'm focusing on only one day, and not even on the Tsar, but rather the Tsarina in the Alexander Palace with her four daughters and son, what really strikes me the more I research, is how that abdication might be the most significant events of the 20th Century if you look at long term impact. Even to this day. It's definitely in the top 5.
Also, while he focuses on the Tsar, I'm fascinated with Rasputin's role via the Tsarina.
Actually, the icon that was supposedly on Rasputin's body, signed by the Tsarina and her four daughters has intrigued me. No one seems to know where it ended up. Which is, of course, fodder for fiction.
If you want a detailed breakdown of the breakdown of Tsarist Russia, this a very worthwhile book.

Read information about the authorRadzinsky (Russian: Эдвард Радзинский) is an author of more than forty popular non-fiction books on historical subjects. Since the 1990s, he has written the series Mysteries of History. The books translated to English include his biographies of Tsars Nicholas II and Alexander II, Rasputin, and Joseph Stalin. His book Stalin: The First In-depth Biography Based on Explosive New Documents from Russia's Secret Archives discusses a number of well known controversies about Joseph Stalin, including the existence of a fuller text of Lenin's Testament, the alleged involvement of Stalin as an agent of the Tsarist secret police, and the role of Stalin in the death of his wife and the murder of Sergey Kirov. According to Radzinsky, Stalin was poisoned by order of Lavrentiy Beria. His book includes an interview with a former bodyguard of Stalin, who stated that on the night of Stalin's death, the bodyguards were relieved of duty by an NKVD officer named Khrustalev. This same officer was briefly mentioned in Memories, the memoir of Stalin's daughter Svetlana Alliluyeva. Radzinsky also supported the hypotesis by Viktor Suvorov that Stalin had prepared a preemptive strike against Nazi Germany
