Maurice Collis in Time and Tide said of The Mongol Empire: "It has the rare merit of being both scholarly and exciting.... The entire world comes on to his canvas, romantic and fantastical persons pass in our view, and at the conclusion we realize that we have seen the whole of what Marco Polo saw only in part." while The Observer commented, "it is a fine book, full of dramatic occasion well used, clear in proportions."

This book describes the life of Jenghis Khan, his creation of the Mongol Empire, and his legacy. The description of the campaigns and battles are fascinating. I am not a historian, but for someone interested in the story, this book is unapologetically entertaining.
Kashicage
This is a great book. I read it first years ago in graduate school, and purchased this copy for our son who recently traveled to Mongolia. The service from this bookseller was prompt and efficient.
Auridora
Excellent material very detailed. Prawdin does a very good job of explaining the the Mongol mind set and why they were so successful.
Ghordana
The book gave a good account of Genghis Khan and his rise to power. Also covered the campaigns if Genghis and his offspring. The book covered the splitting of the empire and the decline fall of the various khanates.
LONUDOG
Fist book I have read that gives a comprhensive view of the Mongol history. Easy reading. In depth.
Araath
Fascinating, if somewhat fictionalized and romanticized account of Jenghiz and the Mongol riders. It is interesting to read of perhaps the `last struggle' of nomads successfully combating a sedentary agrarian-urban population.

The story loses its lustre after the demise of Jenghiz and then Kublai.
Bulace
Interesting account of Mongols in context or Europe and Asia events.
