On Christmas day in 1241 the armies of Batu Khan, founder of the Golden Horde, crossed the Danube while the disunited kingdoms of the West lay at their mercy.

Based on a wealth of contemporary sources, this book is an examination of the origins and consequences of this extraordinary campaign. It describes the tactics and training of the finest army the world has ever seen, and tells the story of Subedei Bahadur, the illiterate military genius who brought twentieth-century warfare to medieval Europe.
