Conquest of Song ChinaDownloadable Audiobook - 2014
This Lecture: At his death in 1227, Genghis Khan had achieved most of what he desired territorially. Why, then, did Kublai Khan and Mn̲gke invade Song China? Investigate this conquest, which some scholars call the greatest of the Mongol's military achievements, including the logistical challenges that Kublai Klan overcame by inventing a new army. The Course: Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan loom large in the popular consciousness as two of history's most fearsome warrior-leaders.
