Description
In the years before World War I, the great European powers were ruled by three first cousins: King George V, Kaiser Wilhelm II, and Tsar Nicholas II. During these years, Wilhelm, George, and Nicholas corresponded and wrote about each other in their diaries. The author uses the cousins' correspondence and a host of historical sources to tell their tragicomic stories. This book the story of the self delusion of royalty: three monarchs, and their mistaken belief, on the very brink of World War I, that their family connection could save Europe from itself.
