 Diaries in war & Revolution, Russia 1914 to 1920 & France 1939 to 1947. Very good book from the diaries  of Anastasia V. Hendrikoff's sister-in-law Olga.

Her brother Peter's wife ( I never knew she had a brother). Interesting how Kerensky allowed the families of the people going into exile with the Imperial Family   go to the Alexander Palace & say" goodbye". Also talks of the death of her other sister-in-law Inochka (Alexandra) during the Civil war.
And how the Henrikoff family went bankrupt & The Czar bought their house & helped the Family after the death of V.A.Hendrikoff in 1912(Anastasia's father)

The Russian part is smaller than the French, but the Emigre experiences in Nazi occupied Paris are very well worth reading. She was accused by the Nazi's of being a spy.

Peter the Great's  half sister.She seems to be as great as him. If she was given  the chance.

I  have had this book awhile. By Lindsey Hughes. Are there any other books  about Sophia ?  She's the first great female ruler of Russia. She may be the first really great Russian Ruler. I would like more information on her.  I really enjoyed this book.  Thats why ,I would like to read more on Sophia.

By Wilson, 1964 ? I was thinking  about getting it.  Is it  worth  buying ?  If anyone knows please tell. Thanks.

What was the story of their affair? Marthe was an  open woman about  these things. Was she really in love with him or just looking for power? I read she also had an affair with the Kaisers son and heir. She was also a friend of Queen Maries's.
