Across Asia from West to East in 1906—1908

One hundred years ago, after having recently returned from the Russo-Japanese war, colonel Mannerheim made a legendary reconnaissance and research expedition across Asia from Samarkand to Peking. The journey, largely conducted on horseback, lasted two years. The goal of the expedition was, in addition to conducting ethnographic and natural science research, to collect military intelligence about China.

Mannerheim's detailed travel diaries and accompanying photographs are a unique collection of materials for Asia researchers and at the same time an exciting adventure for any reader. The diary appeared for the first time in 1940. This revised edition contains previously unpublished information, e.g. previously unpublished pictures selected from the more than 1200 photographs taken by Mannerheim over the course of this epic journey.

Translated by Edward Birse. Revised by Harry Halén. 821 p. + map. 215 x 280 mm. Original Swedish manuscript Dagbok förd under min resa i Central Asien o. Kina 1906, 7 och 8. Approximately 320 (black and white) photographs. ISBN 978-951-1-21284-3.

From a statue delegation to a commemorative foundation (in Finnish)

Infantry General Adolf Ehrnrooth played a major part in preserving the memory and traditions of the Marshal of Finland, and it was at his instigation that the Marshal Mannerheim Commemorative Foundation was founded in 1973, obtaining its initial capital from the funds handed over for this purpose by the delegation appointed to support the erecting of a monument to him in the form of an equestrian statue.

Towards the end of his life General Ehrnrooth asked the director of the Mannerheim Museum, Vera von Fersen, M.A., to write a history of the organizations that had been closely connected with the Marshal's life, and the result was this book, which is based on an interview with the General.
