Has anyone read this book?  I got it at the Cincinnati Museum (one of the few books that they had left).

It's not the most ACCURATE of the books out there - the cover ITSELF is wrong (one of the posed pics of the IF, but they "cropped out" Tatiana to fit it on the cover - ugh!).  There are also several errors, referring to N & A's home as the "Alexandra Palace."  Rasputin is dealt with in a few sentences, and the executions in 1918 of the IF are given all of about two paragraphs!!

However, it goes into a lot of history about Alexander II, esp. about what happened to the children from his morgantic marriage, which I hadn't read before, as well as Alexander III's relationship with his father and siblings, and Nicholas's close relationship with his uncle, Sergei. (Don't expect a lot about Ella, and what's there is entirely negative!)

Might be "jumping the gun" here, but does anyone know of any trips (that is, within the next year) to the AP?  Bob -- is there any possibility those of us on the boards can get something organized?   :D
