Title: Upcoming Books 2015
Post by: grandduchessella on December 03, 2014, 01:14:23 PM
Since it's almost the end of 2014--hard to believe--it's time to start a thread to notify people of books upcoming in 2015. I don't have dates but, based on talks at Royal Gatherings II in the Hague, Eurohistory has some in the pipeline. These include, but are not limited to, Royal Gatherings II and a photobook on the Royal House of Bavaria.

"Princes at War: The British Royal Family's Private Battle in the Second World War" by Deborah Cadbury could be interesting

NOT a Romanov or royal title, but...next month St. Martin's Press will publish Lusitania: Triumph, Tragedy, and the End of the Edwardian Age by Penny Wilson and myself, on Lusitania's last voyage and sinking, for anyone interested.

Actually all three of these  latest books look really promising. Could be a good year, European history-wise.

Kind of fitting, since 2015 will be the 100th Anniversary of that tragedy.

Another: The battle of Vileyka September 1915 by Frank Pleszak This is about a little known battle which the Russians defeated the Germans and end the German advance in the East in 1914. If you google search you can find out a little more on this battle. The author is also writing a book on the battle of Lake Naroch which may be out next year.

I can't speak about the quality of the book , but the subject is neat. GD Alexis' US tour was quite an event. He met many of the most prominent personalities of the day there, and had some real adventures, in spite of the stage- managed nature of many of them.

Is anyone planning to get "The Romanovs: 1613-1918" by Simon Sebag Montefiore (861 pages)

Is anyone planning to get "The Romanovs: 1613-1918" by Simon Sebag Montefiore (861 pages)

It seems rather limiting to write a history of the Romanov dynasty throughout two centuries when they really didn't have that much in common with each other. I could understand writing an 800+ page history of Russia 1613-1918, but lumping both Romanov tsars, autocrats and Holstein-Gottorp emperors together into one narrative just because they all claimed to be Romanovs seems a bit simplistic to me.

That is a real bummer. I was hoping to have it under my Christmas tree. Definitely, as of right now, one of my most awaited books!
