In March 1917 Tsar Nicholas II was forced to abdicate. A satanic darkness descended on the world’s richest nation. The candles of Russia spluttered into flame only with the killing of Soviet Dictator Josef Stalin in March 1953. Covertly aided by the U.S. UK and France the Bolsheviks tightened their death grip on Russia. For 36 years the atrocities of the Red Terrorists were censored, laundered and hailed by media and politicians. It is a myth that Russia’s royals were out of touch. Another is that the slaughter of the aristocracy was primarily a matter for Russia. The bloodline of the martyrdom of Europe’s aristocrats was that of England, Denmark, Greece, Germany, and Romania, Hungary, Russia and Serbia. Through the veins of those who made up the Romanov dynasty (1613-1917) ran the blood of ancient Europe. Theirs was not so much a Russian as a European dynasty. Slaughter of a Dynasty offers insight into issues that others avoid.
