"During the twenty-nine years of his brief life, Thomas Pitt--the notorious Lord Camelford--managed to entangle himself in an amazing succession of exploits. He was rich, titled, and handsome, a superb athlete, and exceedingly restless. His wild travels and career alternately horrified and amused his respectable family and contemporaries. The 'half-mad lord' died in 1804, as violently as he lived, and even after his death continued to cause scandal and controversy"--Jacket, p. [4]
Patrick O'Brian : the making of the novelist, 1914-1949 by Nikolai Tolstoy( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Is the Story of Patrick O'Brian's life up to his decision to move to Collioure in the south of France. His childhood; his precocious writing success; his sailing experiences; and the truth behind his first marriage, divorce, and name change are set forth with candor and sympathy. Along the way Nikolai Tolstoy reveals the seeds of inspiration that would one day lead to comparisons to Jane Austen and even Homer. Tolstoy was O'Brian's stepson, and their acquaintance lasted forty-five years. He stayed with his mother and O'Brian at their French home and was a frequent correspondent with the reclusive author, discovering facets of his character and creative genius that were hidden from others. Over the years he accumulated a vast collection of the author's papers, correspondence, and notebooks, many of which are reproduced here. On the basis of this trove of original material, Tolstoy has written the definitive biography that O'Brian and his admirers deserve
The minister and the massacres by Nikolai Tolstoy( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Af forordet fremgår det, at flere end to millioner flygtninge blev overgivet som konsekvens af Jaltakonferencen i februar 1945 af de vestlige allierede til Stalin. Flertallet af disse flygtninge, der var strandet i hhv. Central- og Vesteuropa ved 2. verdenskrigs afslutning, blev enten myrdet ved ankomsten eller forvist til Gulagadministrationens berygtede udryddelseslejre. Begivenhederne vil beklageligvis nu misforstået blive opfattet som et resultat af den britiske og amerikanske regerings officielle politik. Nikolai Tolstoy, som er slægtning til den store Tolstoy, har skrevet denne bog om udlevering af ca. 40.000 kosakker og hviderussere til likvidering i Sovjet samt udlevering af tusindvis af kroatere til likvidering i Jugoslavien. Ministeren, der hentydes til i titlen som den ansvarlige, er premierminister Harold MacMillan

The mysteries of Stonehenge : myth and ritual at the Sacred Centre by Nikolai Tolstoy( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stonehenge presents us with one of the greatest archaeological mysteries from pre-history. With each new breakthrough in field research and technological innovation, the full scale and significance of the ancient site only deepens. In this new magisterial study by Nikolai Tolstoy, an essentially historical approach is used to try and explain the human story behind the implacable stones, and to enliven our understanding of Stonehenge through the fragments of myth and ritual that survive through Britain's oral tradition. With years of patient study and an acquired fluency with the island's many ancient languages, Tolstoy excavates a new theory from the layers of cultural sediment. Whilst admitting the latest archaeological evidence and research, Tolstoy aims to reconstruct the significant aspects of British pagan ideology and thinking from the pre-Roman era. By exploring the myths and rituals passed down alongside the material remnants of this lost civilization, Stonehenge becomes illumined as the 'sacred centre' of Britain, the holy site at which the ancient peoples' most profound beliefs -- in the birth, destruction, and eventual rebirth of their island itself -- were celebrated."--Publisher information
