Suprisingly easy to read,

This review is from: Genghis Khan: Conqueror of the World (Paperback)
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.
