The distances and terrain - the wide deserts, the impenetrable mountains - make it a difficult venture, even for the legendarily speedy Mongols. But the greatest problem is confronting complex fortifications, a way of fighting a settled urban population - which the nomadic Mongolians have never come across. Finding ways to do that, and keeping his tribes together in a strange environment, presents another new and exciting challenge for Genghis Khan. Not only must Genghis succeed in this incredible campaign, but he must also reconcile the restless factions among his own generals, mediate between his ambitious brothers, and cope with his own reactions to his growing sons.
The young warrior has become a notable and victorious military commander of thousands. He must now learn to become a great leader of peoples of many different races and religions. Lords of the Bow is a deeply satisfying novel, epic in scope, convincing, and fascinating in its narration of an extraordinary story.
