Dispassionate Account of the Imperial Family during the Russian Revolution

Count Paul Benckendorff was the Grand Marshall of the Russian Imperial Court, serving the last three tsars, including the ill-fated Nicholas II. This book accounts the days of the Revolution including the fall of Tsarskoye Selo in 1917, where the Empress Alexandra and her children were at the outbreak of the overthrown of her husband. Later this book tells is the Tsar's reunion with his family and their lives as captives at Tsarskoye Selo, where Bennkendorff was also a captive. Benckendorff tells a studied account of events surrounding that time. I had hoped to learn more of my own ancestor, Captain Sergei Misasoedov-Ivanov, who was in charge of the regiment protecting the Alexander Palace against the revolutionaries while the Empress was there. While I learned some general details, I didn't discover as much as I had hoped including nothing of my own ancestor directly. Benckendorff as an author was somewhat dispassionate at times. One does not doubt his devotion to the Tsar and his family, yet at times his own passion is missing as his own step-son is one of the prisoners accompanying the Tsar. While he later doesn't know what happened to his step-son (who was shot in 1918 unbeknownst to Benckendorff), it seems his greatest concern is for the Emperor who just happens to be accompanied by a man is also his step-son. Still, this book presents a unique view to inside story of these events, and as such it's an interesting read for people intrigued by this era in history.
