The history of the Mongol armies is a catalogue of superlatives. No armies in history have ever won so many battles or conquered so much territory. No army has ever provoked such terror and loathing in its victims, or slaughtered so many of its vanquished. No other has marched on Russia in the winter and survived, let alone won victories? Here these and many other amazing feats of this ‘barbarian’ people are brought vividly to life, from the birth of Genghis Khan in the wind-swept steppes of Mongolia, through the conquest of China and beyond.
