Genghis Khan & the Mongol Conquests, 1190-1400by Stephen R. Turnbull
Synopses & Reviews
The history of the Mongol conquests is a catalog of superlatives. No army in the world has ever conquered so much territory, and few fighting forces have provoked such terror as the Mongol hordes. So vast was the extent of the Mongol Empire that the samurai of Japan and the Teutonic Knights of Prussia had each fought the same enemy while being unaware of each other's existence. This book provides a concise yet thorough account of the Mongol conquests, including the rise of Genghis Khan and the unification of the tribes, with up-to-date information on campaign logistics, tactics, and horse breeding.
This is an historical account of the Mongol conquests of 1190-1400, including the rise of Genghis Khan and the unification of the tribes. It examines the strategies, tactics and logistics that enabled the Mongols to fight successfully against enemies as far apart as Prussia and Korea.
