"God save the Tsar!"

If you are interested in Russian history, as I am, this book should be essential reading for you. It details the reigns of all of the Russian Tsars from their beginning to the end of Nicholas II. Additionally, there are sidebar paragraphs and whole picture pages (with beautiful color photos) that tells the reader more about life and times in Russia during a particular reign.

We read about the begining of Rus as a very small land area which, over the centuries, grew into the country we are familiar with today, even with all of the changes of the past decade or two. I found the entire book fascinating, and would highly recommend it!
