I always enjoy reading about interesting historical characters, and this book definitely checked that box. I have studied Russian history but had never heard of the Baron until coming across this book. The book itself it pretty good, although it does not give much context for the overall civil war raging in Russia. The Baron is a very unappealing, but rather unique, character and I think the book does a decent job of describing his background, beliefs, personality, etc. An interesting, but not particularly uplifting, read.
