I do like these subject matter compilation books that Captivating History puts out. I read their European History and it left me thinking that I didn’t know much about Russian history and, specifically, the Russian Revolution, so I was happy to see this compilation book. The first book is an overview of Russian political history, meaning that it follows the leaders of the Russian states and then Russia as a whole through its history. When doing a concise history on such a broad topic, choices have to be made about what to cover and this seems like a reasonable way to organize things.
I’m glad they included a deeper dive into the Russian Revolution because I wanted to get more in depth about the why’s and how’s of what caused it and why it failed to live up to its ideals. Like the other Captivating History books, I think I have gained a good base of knowledge about a country I knew little about, except as it involved their interaction with the U.S.A. Definitely recommend.
Clearly the life of these people during the Middle Ages was tough and fierce. The intrigues and brutal struggles for survival and rigid control has continued unabated till modern times. All so fascinating. And then the interesting story of the Cambridge Five, - all in one compilation.
I recommend this for a compelling overview of Russian History.
Superb effort by Captivating History !!!
Some of the 'books' featured were available separately.
Learned a lot more about the infamous 'Cambridge Five'.
