Out on An Island Final cover

By Stephan Roman

Isle and Empires

The tumultuous story of the Romanovs and their enigmatic relationship with Britain is brought to life in Stephan Roman’s Isle and Empires. This new book explores the misunderstandings, suspicions and alliances that created an uneasy partnership between two of the world’s most powerful Empires.

In this updated edition, the author asserts that ‘It is important that we understand the history of the British relationship with Romanov Russia if we are to make sense of what is happening today.’
