Nicholas & Alexandra
By Robert K. Massie
The tragic, compelling story of the last Tsar and his familyNicholas & Alexandra is the internationally famous biography from Pulitzer prize-winner Robert Massie. Massie shows conclusively how the personal curse of the young heir's haemophilia, and the decisive influence it brought Rasputin, became fatally linked with the collapse of Imperial Russia. As an engrossing account of one of the century's most dramatic episodes - and an intimate portrait of two people caught at the centre of a maelstrom - Nicholas & Alexandra is unlikely ever to be surpassed.'The story of the last Tsar has probably never been so powerfully - and so accurately - told' Guardian

By using sponges, rags, feathers, paper, and burlap, as well as brushes and rollers on your walls and ceilings, you can simulate that appearance of bamboo cloth, antique mouldings, even formal wallpaper, while energising your interiors. From colour selection and preparing to paint mixing, application and cleanup, the author walks you through every step of the rolling, stippling, colour layering, and other remarkably simple ¿ and surprisingly fun ¿ decorative painting techniques that imbue your rooms with New Age elegance or Old World charm.

Napoleon and Wellington
By Andrew Roberts
A dual biography of the greatest opposing generals of their age who ultimately became fixated on one another, by a bestselling historian.On the morning of the battle of Waterloo, the Emperor Napoleon declared that the Duke of Wellington was a bad general, the British were bad soldiers and that France could not fail to win an easy victory. Forever afterwards historians have accused him of gross overconfidence, and massively underestimating the calibre of the British commander opposed to him. Andrew Roberts presents an original, highly revisionist view of the relationship between the two greatest captains of their age. Napoleon, who was born in the same year as Wellington - 1769 - fought Wellington by proxy years earlier in the Peninsula War, praising his ruthlessness in private while publicly deriding him as a mere 'sepoy general'. In contrast, Wellington publicly lauded Napoleon, saying that his presence on a battlefield was worth forty thousand men, but privately wrote long memoranda lambasting Napoleon's campaigning techniques. Although Wellington saved Napoleon from execution after Waterloo, Napoleon left money in his will to the man who had tried to assassinate Wellington. Wellington in turn amassed a series of Napoleonic trophies of his great victory, even sleeping with two of the Emperor's mistresses.
By Paul Johnson
A short and vivid biography, which deconstructs the Napoleonic myth and reveals the reality of his rule.Written with great wit and panache, this biography also has a serious purpose: to make us face up to the moral bankruptcy of Napoleon¿s dictatorship. Johnson tells the whole story: his astonishing gift for figures and calculation, his mastery of cannon; his audacious, hyperactive and aggressive generalship and his simple battle tactics; his complete control of propaganda and the success of the cultural presentation of the Empire; the Code Napoleon; his failure as an international statesman, as Europe grew to hate him; his marshals and ministers; his wives, mistresses, personal style and working methods; the British blockade and the Continental System; the mistakes in Spain and Russia. The escape from Elba, the events leading up to Waterloo and the battle itself, which gets a full treatment, is particularly riveting.
Nothing For Tears
By Lali Horstmann
The true story of one family's struggle in the chaos of Germany's defeat in 1945Towards the end of the Second World War, Lali Horstmann and her husband Freddy, a retired diplomat and art collector, were living at Kerzendorf, an elegant eighteenth-century house with a small park, avenues, statues and a garden, fifteen miles east of Berlin. The house was destroyed one night by allied bombers and the Horstmanns moved into the agent's little house in the park.It was to this small house that the Russian Secret Police came one spring night in1946 and took Freddy away with them into the dark. Two and a half years later Lali learned, almost by chance, that Freddy had died of starvation in a Russian concentration camp only a few miles from their home.Lali Horstmann's account of the last months of the war under the desperate and demoralised Nazis, and the terrifying arrival of the Russians, is both eloquent and heartbreaking.
