On the guys walking out of the Soviet Union to, I think it was India. I'm sure I read that book. it was fantastic. One of my favorite characters in the book, a real person was, Baron Ungern von Sternberg.

This guy was a total wild Man. James you would love him. He was called the Mad Baron. Look him up.
