Description
Information
THREE COUSINS. THREE EMPERORS. AND THE ROAD TO RUIN.

As cousins, George V, Kaiser Wilhelm II and the last Tsar Nicholas II should have been friends – but they happened also to rule Europe's three most powerful states. This potent combination together with their own destructive personalities – petty, insecure, bullying, absurdly obsessive (stamp collecting, uniforms) – led not only to their own dramatic fallouts and falls from grace, but also to the outbreak of the First World War.

Miranda Carter's riveting account of how three men who should have known better helped bring down an entire world is a gripping story of abdication, betrayal and murder.
