9780099601210: The Romanovs: The Final Chapter

In July 1991, nine skeletons were exhumed from a grave in Siberia, a few miles from where the last Tsar of Russia and his family were murdered 73 years before. Were these the Romanovs? This book aims to provide the answer, returning to the horrifying moments of slaughter, revealing the guilt and cover-ups by Lenin, then describing in graphic detail the efforts of post-Communist Russia to find the bodies and discover the truth. This book, by a Pulitzer prizewinner and written like a detective novel, contains a colourful gallery of contemporary figures, from US Secretary of State James Baker, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, Lord Mountbatten, and fiercely antagonistic forensic experts and DNA scientists from Russia, America and Britain. Two skeletons were missing from the grave, and speculation mounted as to the identity, and possible survival, of these two members of the family. Was Anna Anderson, who had laid claim to being Grand Duchess Anastasia for more than 60 years, really who she claimed to be? This book provides the answer to that question also. This is the sequel to "Nicholas and Alexandra" by the same author, being the final chapter in this historical tragedy.
