"Did Japan Read the Baron's Playbook?"
"Baron Roman von Ungern-Sternberg . . . may have been a bit on the 'unusual' side but he had a grand vision and was nothing if not ambitious. We have talked in the past about his aspirations and his, albeit short-lived, efforts to bring his vision to reality. It says something that, despite being only very briefly on the scene in Outer Mongolia, the 'Mad Baron' became something of a legendary figure . . . A legend though, is of course a fanciful tale, not reality. However, one could be forgiven for thinking that there may have been something to the basic premise considering the extent to which the 'cause' of the bizarre baron was taken up by the forces of the Empire of Japan during and prior to the Second World War."
Those ASPIRATIONS, VISION AND INTENTION of the Baron which was to create a multi-ethnic Eurasian steppe-land nation, a re-creation of the ancient Empire of Genghis Khan and as accomplished by "[a] multi-national counter-revolutionary army of White Russians, Mongols, Tibetans, Manchus, Japanese and other peoples of the region".

I highly recommend the Mad Monarchist Internet web site. Communists not welcome!
