"They (Captain Paul Bulygin and Alexander Kerensky)..are men of totally different..political views. It would be difficult to imagine a greater contrast than that between Captain Bulygin, the battered Jacobite, loyal beyond death to sovereign and sovereignty, and Alexander Kerensky, the typical leader of the peasants' revolutionary party, to whom it fell to administer the justice of the March Revolution of 1917. And yet both are giving-so to speak in parallel columns-their first hand evidence...the end of the Russian Imperial family. ...Both write-Kerensky often, and Bulygin throughout-from personal experience." - from the book introduction by Sir Bernard Pares.
