Działem gdy w czasie wojny domowej uciekał przed bolszewikami przez Syberię Mongolię i Chiny Autor zyskał zaufanie mongolskich lamów i w niezwykłych okolicznościach zawarł znajomość ze słynnym krwawym baronem von Ungern Sternbergiem bałtyckim Niemcem w służbie carskiej który zamierzał zrealizować idee stworzenia na terytorium syberyjskiej kolonii carskiej Rosji Imperium PanmongolskiegoPrzedzierając się przez tajg?.

    This is very exciting moving from one adventure to another much like an Indiana Jones movie While I have doubts about the truth of everything said in the book it does give flesh to the turmoil in East Asia that followed the Bolshevik Revolution in the early 20th century not in Russia as the official blurb says It will keep your attention and while it entertains with action it also gives you a ground up view of the inhuman and barbarous struggle that went on in those years This was recommended by the author of Twentieth Century Mongolia which was a top notch history Worth reading Definitely guy stuff

    Before Curzio Malaparte perfected pseudo history and fictionalized memoir Ossendowski wrote about his own real flight from the Russian Civil War through Siberia and Mongolia inventing embellishing and tall tailing all the way He does have a knack for prose

    Beast Men and Gods is a memoir's following the author's adventurous travels as he runs away from the purges of the early 1900's Russian revolution His travel takes us into the mysterious land of Mongolia and this where the book starts to stretch it legs While this book is a memoir's it is fair to say the author has taken some poetic license Nerveless the book is good solid tale of adventure and gives a good insight of life in Mongolia of this time The book is well paced and the intriguing narrative goads you to continue reading on long past the time you intended to put it down I recommend this book to all if only because it is something a bit different and refreshing than your normal Historical memoirs

    Interesting book about a foggy period in history the civil war in Russia after the Bolshevik revolution in an even remote part of the world Transbaikal and Mongolia It would pay of to follow the action on a map and eventually read on Internet about the placesThe second half of the book is about the bloody baron Ungern Sternberg you know who if you read Corto Maltese in SiberiaLast chapters are unusual considerations about the Tibetan Buddhism as is practiced in Mongolia Even a story about the Hidden King of the World

    Ossendowski's SiberianMongolian adventure is fiction than travelogue but if the reader adjusts their expectations Beasts Men and Gods could be an exciting adventure of escape during the Russian Civil War Good fun but flawed travel writing because of invention and hyperbole Rating 4 out of 5 stars


  9. says:

    It's amazing how many twists and turns of circumstance Ossendowski lived through It seemed like he had a mystical protection about him throughoutThe second half or so was a bit less action probably because he was out of Russia by then but a lot of political intrigue and Buddhism Which is fine; it was his experience

    This was ultimately a great adventure story that was born out of the author’s escape from the Red tyranny that ensued at the tail end of the Russian Civil War He detailed his harrowing journeys out of Russia into Mongolia and the surrounding regions while attempting to dodge Red Army forces sometimes being drawn into battle with them or having to fight various hostile local tribes in preservation of his own life Ultimately his journey brings him into contact with a general of the Russian White forces Baron Ungern von Sternberg the “Bloody Baron” The entire book is a series of fantastical adventures which some apparently have a hard time believing It is certainly possible that the author used a liberal amount of embellishment to keep the reader interested and he was uite successful on that account whatever the case It’s a gripping page turning account Based on all of that I would have awarded four stars in my review however after parting ways with the Baron the remaining chapters wandered somewhat aimlessly through an Eastern religious theme which I just not was interested in at all and I found myself skipping over much of those final pages I think the author’s intent was to make the story a little “exotic” and “mysterious” to the readers of his day I think also it was maybe an attempt to ponder philosophically that perhaps the great warrior Baron might someday be reincarnated at some future time in a return to some great battles or cause to come That bit of haziness aside it’s still a very worthwhile read and for me a stimulus to read about Baron Ungern as well as to read one of the author’s other books “Lenin God of the Godless” Happy reading
