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.

but i don`t think that he had anything new published recently.  If he had I would turn to his books as they are nicely written.
