BOOK DESCRIPTION

General Alexandre Spiridovtich was the Chief of Personal Security to Tsar Nicholas II and his family from 1906 to 1916. He was handpicked by Nicholas II himself and for more than ten years, aided by his detachment secured the emperorís guard on a daily basis, accompanying His Majesty on all his trips, both within Russia and abroad. As a result, the General offers first-hand accounts of the private world of the last tsar of Russia and his family on board the Standart, at their beloved Livadia, touring the Finnish fjords and much more.

He was also responsible for security at the Imperial palaces. He had an eye for detail and provides in detail, the palaces and residences of Nicholas II, as well as his own personal views of many members of the Russian Imperial family.

Spiridovitch and his men were highly recognized for their counter-terrorist work. His memoirs reveal the numerous plots to assassinate the Emperor and other members of the Imperial family by terrorist groups working within Russia.

Many of the 59 photographs in this book come from the private collection of the author himself who was an avid photographer.

General Alexandre Spiridovitch was a pillar of honesty and trust, articulate, and intelligent, loyal to his God, the Tsar and Mother Russia. He was truly a gentleman beyond reproach. His memoirs offer one of the most honest accounts of the character and personality of Tsar Nicholas II and life at the Russian Imperial Court in its twilight years.
