Reviews

This is big history, and the author's style makes it compelling and readable. * Books Monthly *
The book goes into all of the great Mongol victories, but also presents their defeats. Again, contrary to many earlier books the Mongols did not just spread like the plague across Asia. The were unstoppable under good generals and beatable under others... This book is a treasure. The closest book I can compare it to would be Chandler's 'The Campaigns of Napoleon', and should be on every history lover's bookshelf. * A Wargamer's Needful Things *

This is a very valuable addition to the literature on the Mongol conquests, giving us a much clearer idea of the detailed course of their campaigns, the world in which they took place, and the methods used to win them. * History of War *
The Mongol Conquests is highly recommended for both public and college library world history or military history shelves. * Military History Matters (Reviewer) *
'A detailed and authoritative account that will be hard to surpass. Overall, Sverdrup's book is an excellent introduction to the Mongol conquests of the 13th Century and a 'must-read' for enthusiasts of mediaeval warfare in the East. * Wargames Illustrated *
