    This is an exhaustive and fresh look at the life and death of Grigorii Rasputin and the effect it had on Russia at the end of the reign of Nicholas II It must have taken the author ages to write this The amount of cross checking of diaries memoirs archive documents and primary source documents is exhausting to even look at most of these are Russian language sources some translated here for the first timeThe author has approached this story with fresh eyes and the conclusions reached are based on evidence not simply period gossip and the final result is markedly different from what you'll find in other books on Rasputin This book will become essential reading for anyone who wants to know about Rasputin in the future though I suspect the man we find here is not one some people will want to acknowledge even with the overwhelming evidence available as for many people the holy devil is such an attractive understandable character in its way but as you'll find out it's only a cartoon compared to the real man The main source for this book is Gilbert's Royal books online which means its not an easy purchase for most people but if you are interested in the dying days of Russian imperial empire this is highly recommended reading and may make you re think some of the stories you've read in other biographies

    In history much like in anything else there are at least 2 sides to the story In this book we see a whole different side of the familiar story we have come to know as fact the familiar story of the last days of Russia just before the revolution broke out This book is not an easy read by any means It took me about 3 months to finish because I felt like I needed to concentrate on the facts that were presented without the usual distractions in order to fully understand and appreciate them And there is certainly a LOT of new information to digest a lot of new sources that have never been presented before some very startling This is a very different look at the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II specifically during the twilight of his rule This book is not just about Rasputin and his murder it is a comprehensive study from completely different angle of the familiar events we have come to accept as historical truths It can also be viewed as a form of rehabilitation of the last Tsar's reputation based on thorough examination of definitive primary sources that have never been considered before It has been very easy for us to condemn Nicholas II in historical hindsight 2020 but stepping back in history and into his shoes and seeing the events as they were happening from the perspective of perhaps a close contemporary explains and even justifies a lot of the decisions and actions which have always seemed inexplicable or foolish to us The author clearly did a lot of very thorough research going directly to primary sources the way history should be studied From scratch For some strange reason I have always intuitively felt a level of sympathy for Rasputin no matter how reviled he had been in popular history and sensed that painting him as evil and conseuently the imperial couple clueless was too simplistic of a view of very complicated persons and a very complicated situation This book presents us with a much realistic idea of what actually went on during that time period in Russian history and hence helps us balance the view of this history as we knew it until now One thing I would like to suggest perhaps for the next printing is to add an index to make it easier to find info
