By Maurice Paléologue,Nicolas Mietton

Fils d'un prince roumain exilé en France, Maurice Paléologue (1859-1944) débute une brillante carrière au Quai d'Orsay dès 1880. Ayant bénéficié très tôt de puissantes protections (Delcassé, Poincaré...), il est nommé ambassadeur de France à Saint-Pétersbourg en janvier 1914. Partisan inconditionnel de l'alliance franco-russe qu'il est chargé de resserrer, il croit en l. a. strength du "rouleau compresseur russe" lorsque l. a. guerre éclate. Comme beaucoup de ses contemporains, il est persuadé que le conflit sera bref et se soldera par los angeles victoire des alliés. Il déchante bien vite et devient le spectateur de plus en plus inquiet de los angeles détérioration du tsarisme. Il demeurera en poste auprès du gouvernement provisoire jusqu'à son rappel, au mois de mai 1917. Pendant toute cette période, il tient un magazine précis dont l. a. lecture s'apparente à une sorte de feuilleton.
Très proche de los angeles famille impériale, il se livre à une sérieuse critique du régime, dénonçant l. a. bureaucratie, l. a. police, l'impéritie des hommes politiques et des cooks militaires. Il brosse un tableau terrifiant de Saint-Pétersbourg : il évoque aussi bien los angeles misère populaire que l. a. lourde atmosphère de los angeles cour et le rôle délétère de Raspoutine, dont il relate de façon haletante l'assassinat le 31 décembre 1916. Les graphics du couple impérial avec lequel il s'entretient régulièrement et presque familièrement sont saisissants de réalisme.
Un record exceptionnel sur los angeles fin du règne de Nicolas II.
