Description

      * Description * -Highly informed, compellingly written . . . there was a great deal more to the story than its heart-wrenching tragedy.- --The Wall Street Journal -A fascinating account of a ship, its passengers, and its terrible fate.- --Publishers Weekly -The deliberate sinking of the Lusitania by a German U-boat in 1915 has been shrouded in mystery and intrigue that continue even as the 100th anniversary of the tragedy approaches. . . . More than a chronicle of the tragedy, this offers a penetrating look at the end of the Edwardian era.- --Booklist -The Assassination of the Archduke creates a compelling and readable account of the private life of the imperial family headed for doom.- --Seattle Post-Intelligencer -An entertaining challenge to a century of misconceptions.- --Kirkus Reviews on The Assassination of the Archduke -King marshals an amazing amount of information in a very fluid, compelling fashion. . . . It's eye-opening, and even fun, to visit this extraordinary group in its time and place.- --Booklist on The Court of the Last Tsar -King has a vast knowledge of the subject, and those who are fascinated by the life of the royals and aristocratic intrigue will find much to delight in. . . . For those who are intrigued by the Russian high court, there is no better escort.- --Publishers Weekly on The Court of the Last Tsar -Any book by Greg King is a book to be kept and savored. . . . This book is a great work of scholarship and a wonderful read- --Peter Kurth, author of Tsar on The Court of the Last Tsar -King marshals an amazing amount of information, and just as amazingly he presents it all in a very fluid, compelling fashion.- --Booklist on The Court of the Last Tsar -A comprehensive reexamination of the 78 days of the Ekaterinburg captivity, the murders themselves, and the 1991 exhumation of the bodies. . . . The authors engage in a complex game of historical detection that ultimately results in a controversial new perspective on an old but ever-captivating topic.- --Booklist on The Fate of the Romanovs -Biographies of Victoria are plentiful, but King's special approach, his limited focus, certainly makes this new one far from redundant.- --Booklist on Twilight of Splendor Edition: Reprint Number of Pages: 416 Genre: Transportation Sub-Genre: Ships & Shipbuilding Format: Paperback Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin Book theme: History Author: Penny Wilson Language: English Estimated shipping dimensions: 5.4INCH X 8.2INCH X 1.0INCH DPCI : 248-10-9590 UPC : 9781250080356 TCIN : 50772215 Estimated shippimg weight: 0.7POUND
