Yes, definitely read over the summer, it's good preparation. What specific part of Russian history will it be on? Early 20th century?

I bought "The Last Tsar, The Life And Death of Nicholas II" by Edvard Radzinsky, definitely recommend.

Moved to History study help.

Hi,


I would recommend Orlando Figes revolutionary Russia and the Cambridge Modern Histories which you can find online. HistoryToday as well as Jstor will have plenty of articles and you could get your hands on the AQA books for Russia which are more accessible than books written by Orlando Figes, Stephen Kotkin and Edvard Radzinsky. For contemporary sources you could try and obtain Trotsky's book ?
