I would have given this review five stars but for the same problem - maps. The problem this time, unlike my review of the 'Road to Armageddon' was not the lack of maps but the use of maps which seem to have been hastily put together with little or no detail. You cannot expect to have a good history of the empire of the Mongols and their numerous battles without detailed maps to emphasise the scale of their achievements. A family tree of the descendants of Genghis Khan, at least showing the origins of the White and Golden Hordes and Chagataids would also have been a great help.

That said, Mr. Bartlett gives, yet again, a highly readable account of the history of the Mongols. From the beginnings of Temujin, the internal squabbles on the Steppes, the conquest of Kwarezm, China, the forays into Europe, Japan, right up to Tamerlane - its all there. Admittedly, some periods are given a cursory treatment but enough to prompt the interested reader to delve deeper.

This is as comprehensive a history of the Mongols you will find in a single volume - well worth a read!

I brought this book because I am interested in the history of Genghis Khan and this book expanded my knowledge of the mongol empire and encouraged me to read more on the subject.
An academic work that is eminently readable

I found this to be an easy to read book. Some times history and archaeology books can be a little to esoteric, but this was not the case. This book is very modern compared to others i have read on this subject. I found it to be an relaxing rather than taxing read

Characters appear with no background introduction, hideous cliches which seems to have come from comics (e.g. swimming in rivers of blood)

Avoid
