Description

This lavishly illustrated companion to the television series of the same title chronicles the amazing rise to power of Ghengis Khan, the unification of the Mongol tribes under his leadership, and their unprecedented military success as they conquered all before them, from Asia to Eastern Europe. In the middle of the thirteenth century, while Europe was still a patchwork of feudal states, there emerged from the East a vast empire that eventually spanned the breadth of Asia. Before Ghengis Khan, no Mongol nation could be said to exist. Under the banner of one greatest generals in history, the forces of a relatively small and decidedly young nation out-maneuvered and out-thought the armies of Asia and Europe to establish the Mongol Empire.
