Nikolai Nikolaevich was a key figure in Imperial Russia and one of its foremost soldiers. At the outbreak of World War I, Nicholas II appointed him Supreme Commander of the Russian Army. From 1914 to 1915 and in 1917, he was commander of the largest army in the greatest war the world had ever seen, reflecting the fact that he was perhaps the man whom the last Emperor of Russia trusted the most. While his temper was legendary, Robinson's vivid account shows he had a more complex personality than either his supporters or detractors believed. The result of archival research in seven countries, this groundbreaking biography - the first in English - covers the Grand Duke's entire life, examining both his private life and his professional career. Robinson's engaging account will be of value to those interested in World War I, biographies of notable figures, and military and Russian history.
