Download Убийцы Российской Империи. Тайные пружины революции 1917 by Оппоков Виталий Георгиевич PDF

By Оппоков Виталий Георгиевич

Аннотация издательства: Октябрьскую революцию 1917 года не зря поначалу именовали переворотом. В отличие от подлинных революций, совершаемых «снизу», заговоры и перевороты планируются в высоких кабинетах, и именно «верхи» подталкивают народ к осуществлению этих планов. Не стали исключением и Февраль, и Октябрь 17-го. Горячие споры о тех роковых для России событиях не стихают до сих пор. Был ли Ленин «германским шпионом»? Как объяснить ту сравнительную легкость, с которой Николай Романов отрекся от престола? Почему первой на верность Временному правительству присягнула ближайшая родня низложенного монарха? И самый главный вопрос: следует ли считать гибель Российской Империи «политическим самоубийством», как твердят учебники истории? Или это было «заказное убийство» - умышленное, расчетливое, жестокое? В своей новой книге В.Оппоков исследует причины и тайные пружины величайшей катастрофы русской истории, определяя место Октябрьского переворота в мировой политике и роль Европы в уничтожении Российской Империи.

By Luc Mary

Exercer le pouvoir est un jeu très dangereux. Louis XV, Laval, Clemenceau, Bonaparte, Louis-Philippe Ier, Napoléon III et Charles de Gaulle : tous ont échappé de justesse aux poignards, aux pistolets et autres « machines infernales » de leurs agresseurs.
Les attentats qui ont émaillé l’histoire de France sont innombrables. Luc Mary choisit d’en raconter dix d’entre eux avec moult détails et, ce qui est passionnant, leurs conséquences. end result de complots longuement mûris ou actes isolés de déséquilibrés, les tentatives d’assassinat ont toujours soulevé une grande émotion quand elles n’ont pas modifié sensiblement le cours de l’histoire. Ainsi, l’attentat contre l’amiral de Coligny déclencha le bloodbath de l. a. Saint-Barthélemy, celui de los angeles rue Saint-Nicaise conforta le pouvoir de Bonaparte, celui du Petit-Clamart amena le général de Gaulle à proposer l’élection du président de l. a. République au suffrage universel.
Muni d’une documentation solide, Luc Mary s’interroge aussi sur les motivations de ceux qui ont échoué dans leurs tentatives : les Châtel, Damiens, Cadoudal, Fieschi ou Bastien-Thiry, écartelés, décapités ou fusillés. Et si les seuls bénéficiaires de ces « ratés de l’histoire » n’étaient pas les victimes elles-mêmes ?
