        The Last of the Tsars is a masterful study of a man who was almost entirely out of his depth, perhaps even willfully so. It is also a compelling account of the social, economic and political foment in Russia in the aftermath of Alexander Kerensky's February Revolution, the Bolshevik seizure of power in October and the beginnings of Lenin's 5/5(1).   The Last Czars is a six-part miniseries brought to Netflix by production company Nutopia, and the format is probably unlike anything you've ever binge-watched before. Blending narrator-led.

        The distinguished Oxford historian Robert Service examines this important historical moment in The Last of the Tsars: Nicholas II and the Russian Author: Terry Hartle.   THE LAST TSAR’S DRAGONS (co-written by Yolen and her son Adam Stemple) follows the fate of the last tsar of Russia and his family as the revolution swallows them alive, much like his dragons swallow their prey. The tsar’s dragons have been trained to hunt the Jews of Russia, who live in fear of sound of wing beats.4/5.
