The July 1918 murder of the Romanov family horrified the world, and over the past century, many details of the coup have emerged. Less commonly known are the various plots and plans to save the family—on the part of their royal relatives, other governments, and Russian monarchists loyal to the Tsar. The question of asylum for the Tsar and his family presented enormous political, logistical and geographical challenges at a time when Europe was still at war. King George V has long been blamed for failing to save the Romanovs, but here the author of Caught in the Revolution refutes this claim, providing a powerful account of near misses and lost opportunities for saving the Russian royal family.
