This biography shows that the emperor was a stubborn man who would not be persuaded by his counselors to change course once his decision was made no matter how clear it became that circumstances had changed and so should his objectives. He was a weakling who followed the desires of the English and French who wanted a second front opened on the East to take the pressure off the West. They did not care how many Russians had to die in the process.
This is an honest recital of events at the very heart of the Russian monarchy.
It is an illuminating view of a fascinating epoch in world history and I recommend it to anyone with an interest in that era.
