Leonid Yuzefovich – Sovereign of the Steppe. Baron Ungern-Sternberg

new sale

Estonian language rights sold to Postimees

The revised edition of Leonid Yuzefovich’s biography on  BARON UNGERN-STERNBERG will be the basis for the Estonian translation. This carefully revised and extended version is, moulding an amalgamation of unknown archive material, revealed only recently and not available to historians and journalists in the West, into a book which reads like an historical detective story.

Baron Ungern von Sternberg was a Czarist officer stationed in Siberia. After the Revolution he found himself back in the ranks of the White Army which had been formed in opposition to the Bolsheviks. For a short time in 1920 this was where the converted Buddhist Baron was able to set up his own autocratic empire. His reckless endeavours were inspired by his vision of bringing Ghingis Khan’s Golden Horde back to life. In the end, however, the Bolsheviks managed to defeat his cavalier army too.
