Do you think the bomb that killed Alexander II. was really disguised as an Easter cake (Radzinsky, Royal Russia)?
According to another source the bombs consisted of thick glass filled with nitrogycerine and were wrapped in white cloth.
does anyone like edvard radisnsky's book on Alexander II
I do like Radzinskiy`s book although his perception of Alexander II migt be one-sided.Also, Radzinskiy, is famous for his theatricality and use of far-fetched assumptions. He projects his personal views and concepts on his characters. Sometimes he writes in a manner that makes one assume that Radzinskiy himself was present during these events.BUt still, his books contain a lot of useful information.It can be a starting point for further research.it`s a good book to start with one`s research. But if one wants to see a panorama of certain periods or to see a many-sided portrait of an individual it`s not a good idea to rely ONLY on is books. But i don
