From Genghis Khan to his equally notorious son Ogedai Khan, this volume introduces readers to one of the bloodiest wars ever fought. Historical images highlight some of the most devastating moments, such as the conquest of Baghdad, while chapters focusing on the Mongols' battle tactics show readers just how they conquered so much land.
