Summary: Economist James Palmers account of [Baron Ungern-Sternbergs] brutal and ill-starred life is elegant, waspish and evocative. Russian Life This is an epic biography (ranging from WWI battles, to the Civil War, to Manchuria) told in an easy style that infects the reader with curiosity, peeling back myths to reveal the strange and twisted man that was Ungern-Sternberg. Bookforum Palmer effectively evokes both the enormous scope and the small absurdities of war. Simon Sebag-Montefiore, Sunday Telegraph The rise and fall of Baron Ungern-Sternberg is one of the most demented, savage and grotesque stories of modern times. Palmer, with his special knowledge of Mongolia and enthusiasm for Ungern's blend of lunacy, politics and war, delivers an enjoyable, exciting biography that recounts the crimes and conquests of this monster compellingly, colourfully and with cinematic relish. New York Times What makes The Bloody White Baron so exceptional is Palmers lucid scholarship, his ability to make perfect sense of the maelstrom of a forgotten war. This is a brilliant book, and Im already looking forward to his next. Michigan War Studies Review [C]olorfully written&. Palmers absorbing biography of Ungern brings to life a sinister but important man who helped shape events in a remote part of the world in the early twentieth century. The Journal of Slavic Military Studies One of the most bizarre characters in the history of the twentieth century, the Baron could not have been imagined had he not existed&. The book is a vivid well written account of a man who combined mysticism, cruelty, and military leadership in the borderlands of Asia.". N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_0465014488
