As I have recntly began to study Genghis Khan, I have been looking for books which are both historically accurate and easy to read. Leo de Hartog's work is the closest to this that I have come so far in my reading. For a translation it is suprisingly easy to read and there is no loss doubt that it is of excellent historical value. For me, the section that deals with the mongols' contact with Europe was particularly interesting and few other authors pay as much attention to this area. Overall, good for both the general reader and the scholar.

This was my first book about Genghis Khan and the Mongols and I found it a little dry. It was really a factual account of this happened, then that, then that which is okay but does not make for compulsive reading.

The author has only used secondary sources - he apparently knows no Mongolian - a lot of them C19th Western European, so its only a precis of the old/dated work of others.The maps are truly terrible.
