Fuhrmann, a Rasputin expert whose 1990 biography Rasputin: A Life was widely praised as the best on the subjectSynthesizing archival sources with published documents, memoirs, and other studies of Rasputin into a single, comprehensive work, Rasputin: The Untold Story will correct a century′s worth of misconception and error about the life and death of the famous Mad Monk and decline and fall of Imperial Russia.
