 About the Book 

Even though the 20th century has seen the decline and fall of the monarchy as the worlds most important form of government, royalty often played major roles in both World Wars, as well as the events leading up to them and their aftermaths. TheMoreEven though the 20th century has seen the decline and fall of the monarchy as the worlds most important form of government, royalty often played major roles in both World Wars, as well as the events leading up to them and their aftermaths. The current situation in Bosnia, for example, is a legacy of the collapse of monarchy, as is the situation in the Middle East. This country-by-country account of royal families in wartime exhaustively covers the actions of the czars of Russia and the kaisers of Germany, as well as their blood connections to the British royal family. In addition, stories are told of little-known heroics during the Nazi invasions by the royal families of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.
