Robert Service at Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017

Russia and Revolution with Robert Service: In March 1917, Nicholas II, the last Tsar of All the Russias, abdicated and the dynasty that had ruled an empire for 300 years was forced from power by revolution. Now, marking the 100th anniversary of that revolution, Robert Service - the eminent historian of Russia - provides a riveting account of the last 18 months of Nicholas's life and reign. Using previously untapped sources, including the Tsar's diaries and recorded conversations, Service sheds remarkable new light on an extraordinary turning point in modern history. He also reveals the kind of ruler Nicholas believed himself to have been, contrary to the disastrous reality.
