In June of 1923, a military coup established Aleksandar Tsankov as the new leader of Bulgaria. His fascist policies - especially aimed at the Bulgarian Communist Party - led to the failed September Uprising and an extended period of martial law. At that same time, Geo Milev - one of Bulgaria's most beloved poets - started a politically charged literary magazine with Georgi Sheytanov, a notorious anarchist on the run. Eighteen months later, the government assassinated both of them, although Milev's body wouldn't be found for another thirty years.
