About this book
A fascinating study of the three dysfunctional rulers of Germany, Russia and Great Britain at the beginning of the 20th century: Kaiser Wilhelm II, Tsar Nicholas II and George V. Drawing on the correspondence of the 3 cousins, and a host of other historical sources, this tells the tragi-comic story of their tiny, glittering, solipsistic world that would prove hideously out of kilter with its times. Now in paperback.
As cousins, George V, Kaiser Wilhelm II and the last Tsar Nicholas II should have been friends - but they happened also to rule Europe's three most powerful states. This book offers an account of how three men who should have known better helped bring down an entire world is a gripping story of abdication, betrayal and murder.
