    July 17 2018 Marks the 100th year Anniversary of the murder of the Russian Imperial family - I wanted to read another book on the Russian Imperial Family and when I listenend to Helen Helen Rappaport's interview on Dan Snows History Hit Podcast , I just had to get my hands on a c...

    It seems I?ve always had an affinity for the story of the Romanovs, reading books about them long ago and being interested in them for years. It?s just such a captivating tale, with the large wealthy family in Russia, the ill son that they all dote on, especially when he?s unwell...

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher --- Investigating the murder of the Russian Imperial Family, Helen Rappaport embarks on a quest to uncover the various international plots and plans to save th...

    The Romanovs were closely related to several European royal houses ? the British, German and Danish in particular ? so why did none of their relatives manage to save them after their arrest following the Revolution? And what of the Russian officers loyal to the monarchy who were sa...

    Not being a Russophile, I was unaware of the blame game going on as to whose fault it was that the Romanov family was killed. With all of the royal families in Europe being related, one of them should have whisked the family to safety. England?s King George gets the biggest rap, but...

    What a great read! Easy enough to say now that ?someone? should have saved the Romanovs, but Helen Rappaport, with her meticulous and exhaustive research, explores how indeed many people, including the crowned head of Europe, came up with plans and stratagems and machinations to do...

    "The Race to Save the Romanovs" is British historian Helen Rappaport's fourth book about the Romanovs and the Russian Revolution. As she states in her forward, she'd covered every part of the Romanov's fate beside the long-asked question, "why didn't anyone try to rescue the royal fami...

    Solid work of scholarship and very readable, too. Rappaport details why virtually every royal family (or government) in Europe considered rescuing the imperiled Czar, Czarina and family ? and why they ultimately didn?t. A loathing for the breathtakingly snobbish Alexandra certa...

    Extremely detailed examination of 1917-1918 events in regards to who did or did not (most) try to save the Romanov family from their murder in Ekaterinberg. Rappaport is a well known researcher and author of other Romanov books, but in this story she examined archives from around th...

    (Note: I received an advanced reader copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley) Helen Rappaport returns again to the ends days of the Russian Empire with a deep look at all the attempts made behind the scenes to try and protect the lives Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The author le...

    A hundred years have come and gone but the story of the Romanovs still captures our heart and grabs our attention. Helen Rappaport has written a third intriguing book on Russia?s last Tsar and his family. As the title suggests this book is about the endless plans to rescue the fami...

    A thoroughly researched analysis of the obstacles to rescuing Czar Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra and their children in 1917-1918. Rappaport argues that there was a very narrow window of opportunity for the Imperial family to escape because of the internal political situation within Ru...

    As we hurtle towards the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Romanovs I shoved aside my sky-high TBR pile and concentrated on reading this book in tandem with C.W. Gortner's "The Romanov Empress". I highly recommend "The Race to Save the Romanovs". The reader is led through the t...

    Very nearly one hundred years to the actual day the Romanov family was butchered in Ekaterinberg, mystery still surrounds the several plans to save Nicolas, Alexandra and their children. Thanks to Helen Rappaport, who continues to dig through all the lies, deceits and cover-ups of Eu...

    This is an interesting and scholarly clear up of many if the rumours and misleading beliefs about the attempts,or not,to rescue the Romanivs. Exceedingly well researched,it is also well written and I found the last section about the refusal to reveal the truth about their deaths and th...

    With the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Romanov family coming up this month, This peaked my interest. This was a interesting book and shocking that nobody helped the Romanov family, despite the plans to offer asylum and left the family to their own demise. ...

    Concentrate, concentrate. I prefer to use this book as a reference. ...

    Not being a Russophile, I was unaware of the blame game going on as to whose fault it was that the Romanov family was killed. With all of the royal families in Europe being related, one of them should have whisked the family to safety. England?s King George gets the biggest rap, but...

    What a great read! Easy enough to say now that ?someone? should have saved the Romanovs, but Helen Rappaport, with her meticulous and exhaustive research, explores how indeed many people, including the crowned head of Europe, came up with plans and stratagems and machinations to do...

    "The Race to Save the Romanovs" is British historian Helen Rappaport's fourth book about the Romanovs and the Russian Revolution. As she states in her forward, she'd covered every part of the Romanov's fate beside the long-asked question, "why didn't anyone try to rescue the royal fami...

    Solid work of scholarship and very readable, too. Rappaport details why virtually every royal family (or government) in Europe considered rescuing the imperiled Czar, Czarina and family ? and why they ultimately didn?t. A loathing for the breathtakingly snobbish Alexandra certa...

    Extremely detailed examination of 1917-1918 events in regards to who did or did not (most) try to save the Romanov family from their murder in Ekaterinberg. Rappaport is a well known researcher and author of other Romanov books, but in this story she examined archives from around th...

    A hundred years have come and gone but the story of the Romanovs still captures our heart and grabs our attention. Helen Rappaport has written a third intriguing book on Russia?s last Tsar and his family. As the title suggests this book is about the endless plans to rescue the fami...

    A thoroughly researched analysis of the obstacles to rescuing Czar Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra and their children in 1917-1918. Rappaport argues that there was a very narrow window of opportunity for the Imperial family to escape because of the internal political situation within Ru...

    As we hurtle towards the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Romanovs I shoved aside my sky-high TBR pile and concentrated on reading this book in tandem with C.W. Gortner's "The Romanov Empress". I highly recommend "The Race to Save the Romanovs". The reader is led through the t...

    This is an interesting and scholarly clear up of many if the rumours and misleading beliefs about the attempts,or not,to rescue the Romanivs. Exceedingly well researched,it is also well written and I found the last section about the refusal to reveal the truth about their deaths and th...

    With the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Romanov family coming up this month, This peaked my interest. This was a interesting book and shocking that nobody helped the Romanov family, despite the plans to offer asylum and left the family to their own demise. ...

    It seems I?ve always had an affinity for the story of the Romanovs, reading books about them long ago and being interested in them for years. It?s just such a captivating tale, with the large wealthy family in Russia, the ill son that they all dote on, especially when he?s unwell...

    Not being a Russophile, I was unaware of the blame game going on as to whose fault it was that the Romanov family was killed. With all of the royal families in Europe being related, one of them should have whisked the family to safety. England?s King George gets the biggest rap, but...

    "The Race to Save the Romanovs" is British historian Helen Rappaport's fourth book about the Romanovs and the Russian Revolution. As she states in her forward, she'd covered every part of the Romanov's fate beside the long-asked question, "why didn't anyone try to rescue the royal fami...

    Extremely detailed examination of 1917-1918 events in regards to who did or did not (most) try to save the Romanov family from their murder in Ekaterinberg. Rappaport is a well known researcher and author of other Romanov books, but in this story she examined archives from around th...

    (Note: I received an advanced reader copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley) Helen Rappaport returns again to the ends days of the Russian Empire with a deep look at all the attempts made behind the scenes to try and protect the lives Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The author le...

    A hundred years have come and gone but the story of the Romanovs still captures our heart and grabs our attention. Helen Rappaport has written a third intriguing book on Russia?s last Tsar and his family. As the title suggests this book is about the endless plans to rescue the fami...

    A thoroughly researched analysis of the obstacles to rescuing Czar Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra and their children in 1917-1918. Rappaport argues that there was a very narrow window of opportunity for the Imperial family to escape because of the internal political situation within Ru...

    As we hurtle towards the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Romanovs I shoved aside my sky-high TBR pile and concentrated on reading this book in tandem with C.W. Gortner's "The Romanov Empress". I highly recommend "The Race to Save the Romanovs". The reader is led through the t...

    Very nearly one hundred years to the actual day the Romanov family was butchered in Ekaterinberg, mystery still surrounds the several plans to save Nicolas, Alexandra and their children. Thanks to Helen Rappaport, who continues to dig through all the lies, deceits and cover-ups of Eu...

    This is an interesting and scholarly clear up of many if the rumours and misleading beliefs about the attempts,or not,to rescue the Romanivs. Exceedingly well researched,it is also well written and I found the last section about the refusal to reveal the truth about their deaths and th...

    With the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Romanov family coming up this month, This peaked my interest. This was a interesting book and shocking that nobody helped the Romanov family, despite the plans to offer asylum and left the family to their own demise. ...

    July 17 2018 Marks the 100th year Anniversary of the murder of the Russian Imperial family - I wanted to read another book on the Russian Imperial Family and when I listenend to Helen Helen Rappaport's interview on Dan Snows History Hit Podcast , I just had to get my hands on a c...

    It seems I?ve always had an affinity for the story of the Romanovs, reading books about them long ago and being interested in them for years. It?s just such a captivating tale, with the large wealthy family in Russia, the ill son that they all dote on, especially when he?s unwell...

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher --- Investigating the murder of the Russian Imperial Family, Helen Rappaport embarks on a quest to uncover the various international plots and plans to save th...

    The Romanovs were closely related to several European royal houses ? the British, German and Danish in particular ? so why did none of their relatives manage to save them after their arrest following the Revolution? And what of the Russian officers loyal to the monarchy who were sa...

    Not being a Russophile, I was unaware of the blame game going on as to whose fault it was that the Romanov family was killed. With all of the royal families in Europe being related, one of them should have whisked the family to safety. England?s King George gets the biggest rap, but...

    What a great read! Easy enough to say now that ?someone? should have saved the Romanovs, but Helen Rappaport, with her meticulous and exhaustive research, explores how indeed many people, including the crowned head of Europe, came up with plans and stratagems and machinations to do...
