Atheneum, 1979 - Religion - 190 pages. Excellent history of the invasion of Europe by the Mongols, giving the campaign of Subedei and Batu as the focus, but also referring to what had come immediately prior to this (the first European. From inside the book. This is a VERY good book with some minor shortcomings. The most glaring is the mention of many Mongol characters without an introduction as to who they were (and there is not a listing of major.

The Mongol invasion of Europe was entering its final phase, and it seemed as if all of Christendom was about to be destroyed by the soldiers from Hell.

Book club associates.

The Mongols formed one of the finest armies ever known-and when they swept across the Danube on Christmas Day 1241, the west lay at the mercy of these "horsemen from hell. From a wealth of contemporary sources comes the story of these soldiers, and especially of Subedei Bahadur, the illiterate military genius who brought 20th-century warfare to Medieval Europe. A fascinating examination of their tactics and training-good enough to invent strategies that Rommel and Patton would later use to such devastating effect-proves the Mongols were more than mere barbarians:.

A rare combination. An informative, yet highly readable book about the greatest Army in history, and the greatest general that led it, Sabotai, in the ONLY successful attack on Russia in history. And that's just the opening of the greatest campaign, the Mongol invasion of Eastern Europe.

Chambers also provides a precis of the destruction of Khwaresm, and Genghis Khan's earlier history. A must read!

The world was poised to be Asian dominated in 1240. It all turned on a dime.
The power of the Mongol horde was awesome and no one in Europe was able to
stop it. Chambers goes into great detail in explaining the chaos that was Europe in
the 13th Century and how they were unable to deal with the inevitable doom soon to
be visited upon them. Only a fluke event saved Europe from total destruction at the
hands of the Mongols. Read this book and find out how Europe managed to remain Europe.

I like to read about periods in human history that are like gray areas in my knowledge. This book is a pretty quick read and explains the Mongol's invasions of Europe form their point of view and the Europeans'. Not a lot of details about weaponry or even tactics, but plenty of discussion about the individual leaders on both sides. I banged this one out and now I know who they were and how they affected Europe. I recommend it if you want that kind of quick summary.

I only gave it four stars because I did not want anyone to think that this is the be all and end all of books about the Mongols. It is what it is.
