Palmer, James:
The Bloody White Baron - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 9780571230242

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Faber and Faber], Usually, when a biographer has failed to find sources that take the reader inside the head of his subject, it is a disappointment. In the case of Baron Roman Ungern von Sternberg, however, one can only feel intensely relieved that James Palmer has been unable to come up with an intimate diary, a memoir from a mistress or letter home to mum. For Ungern appears to have been so unpleasantly mad (think keeping people up trees for days at a time or sending them on patrol naked on the Siberian ice) that in any other era he would have been committed to a genteel asylum somewhere in a foresty bit of middle Europe where his fantasy that he was the reincarnation of Genghis Khan would have been tolerated with a wry smile and a very large bunch of keys. Ungern didn't start out mad, although he does seem to have been really quite bad from the get-go. Born in 1885 into one of those aristocratic Baltic German clans that had staffed the imperial Russian court and army for centuries, Ungern was expelled from pretty much every elite educational and training institution open to him. Still, he managed to creep into the Russian army in order to serve in the Russo-Japanese conflict of 1904, and from there he levered himself a spot as a cavalry general in the first world war which followed shortly after. When the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917 Ungern joined the Whites in the far east and served under the equally bonkers Semenov, who by now had the backing of, confusingly, the Japanese. Appointed governor of the Siberian town of Dauria, and no longer considering himself beholden to anyone, Ungern set about creating a private army consisting of 16 nationalities, including Cossacks, Buryats and plain old Russians. The objectives of this raggle-taggle crew were to restore the late Tsar's brother to the imperial throne, recreate the glory days of Genghis Khan's empire, and uphold the rule of the living god-king, Bogd Khan, in Mongolia., [SC: 5.50], leichte Gebrauchsspuren, privates Angebot, 198x128mm, [GW: 230g], [PU: London]

ID: 9780571230242

Roman Ungern von Sternberg was a Baltic aristocrat, a violent, headstrong youth posted to the wilds of Siberia and Mongolia before the First World War. After the Bolshevik Revolution, the Baron - now in command of a lethally effective rabble of cavalrymen - conquered Mongolia, the last time in history a country was seized by an army mounted on horses. He was a Kurtz-like figure, slaughtering everyone he suspected of irreligion or of being a Jew. And his is a story that rehearses later horrors in Russia and elsewhere. James Palmer's book is an epic recreation of a forgotten episode and will establish him as a brilliant popular historian. Books James Palmer|Paperback|Faber & Faber|05/03/2009, Faber & Faber
