5.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing story about the fate of two Russian noble families, October 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Former People: The Final Days of the Russian Aristocracy (Hardcover)
This is a valuable contribution to the study of Russian history as Douglas Smith has delved into a topic that has been largely ignored - the fate of individual noble families in post-Revolutionary Russia. In his book, Smith focuses on two of the most prominent and important families in Russian history - the Sheremetevs and the Golitsyns. Smith effectively combines general history and the experiences of individual family members during the Revolution, the Civil War and the Stalin era to create an involving and fascinating account.
