Osprey Essential Histories 57 : Genghis Khan & the Mongol Conquests 1190-1400

The history of the Mongol conquests is a catalogue of superlatives. No army in the world has ever conquered so much territory, and few armies provoke such terror as do the Mongol hordes. So vast was the extent of the Mongol Empire that the samurai of Japan and the Teutonic Knights of Prussia each fought the same enemy while being unaware of 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. Text by Stephen Turnbull.
