Massie's mess
Robert Massie cannor read Russian! That fact tells me a lot about his latest book!
the man has lost his marbles at 82, but historians of
russia have long known him as a fraud! Jut ask his first wife where he got his info! It's simply amazing to me that people parrot
Rndom House's marketing campaign. oes anybody read the book with any care? If they did, they would find doxens of errors great and smallo. His prose is unremarkable. He's never heard of articles! Nor does he know about the Internet! If he did, he would know that the stories about
catherine's sex life have been all over the Intdrnet for twqo decades!
where has he been?? This is an "expert" on
russia!?? Puleeze!!
The man is simly a fraud!
