£5.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Described by Simon Sebag-Montefiore as 'one of the most demented, savage and grotesque stories of modern times', the life of Baron Ungern-Sternberg, who conquered Mongolia in 1919 and dreamed of retaking Moscow, is rediscovered by James Palmer in this scarcely believable history. A dangerous anti-Semitic madman, the Baron killed in the name of Buddha and believed himself to be the returned Genghis Khan, foreshadowing by over a decade the Nazis' combination of genocide and half-baked mysticism.
