29. THE LAST OF THE TSARS: NICHOLAS II & THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION

Generously sponsored by

Robert Service is an internationally acclaimed professor of Russian history and well placed to assess Nicholas II, a man who was almost entirely out of his depth, perhaps even wilfully so. It will also be a compelling account of the social, economic and political aftermath of Alexander Kerensky’s February Revolution, the Bolshevik seizure of power in October 1917 and the beginnings of Lenin’s Soviet Republic.
