Spanning 1800 years of Russia's history, people, politics, and culture, this grand saga is as multifaceted as the country itself, as it chronicles the lives of four families who are divided by ethnicity but united in shaping the destiny of their land.

After reading his first book Sarum, which was very good, I am having trouble getting through this one about Russia. It is very dark and troubling. Their development as a people and as country are so incredibly different from us in the West, and often times extremely brutal. I am just to the chapter after " Fathers and Sons" which is a tremendously insightful commentary on just how the seeds came to fruition for the revolution. It is troubling to see our nation about to follow a similar path, rejecting the lessons of the past.
I think the author takes quite a few liberties here and maybe embellishes some and skirts much???
I will have to find some other insights to clarity on Russian history as this may not be too accurate???
