Summary
Historian James Palmer relates the story of megalomaniac Baron Freiherr Roman Nikolai Maximilian von Ungern-Sternberg, an anti-Bolshevik German Russian reactionary who in 1920 led a lethally effective rabble of cavalrymen in a grand but shortlived campaign to unify the Mongol people while at the same time frightening the Russians and slaughtering everyone he suspected of irreligion or of being a Jew
Summary
Chronicles the life and campaigns of the brutal nobleman who led a group of White Russians, Siberians, Japanese, and native Mongolians in conquering Mongolia in 1920, spreading antisemitism, violence, and genocide in his wake, and dreamed of driving the communists out of Moscow and restablishing the Mongolian Empire
