It looks like it is mostly aimed at wargamers and the Grand Army of the Tuigan in Forgotten Realms is not going to be exactly the same as the Mongol Empire of the real-world, but Toril's Hordelands are obviously heavily inspired by Mongolia and I'm wondering if there is anything in this book that would help a FR game set in the Hordelands.The Mongols (Men-at-Arms) at Amazon wrote:The Mongols (Men-At-Arms Series, 105) Paperback – November 20, 1980
by Stephen Turnbull (Author), Angus McBride (Illustrator)
The history of the Mongol armies is a catalogue of superlatives. No armies in history have ever won so many battles or conquered so much territory. No army has ever provoked such justifiable terror and loathing in its victims, or slaughtered so many of its vanquished. What other army in history has marched on Russia in the winter and survived, let alone won victories? The stories of these and many other amazing feats of this 'barbarian' people are here brought vividly to life by Stephen Turnbull, from the birth of Genghis Khan in the wind-swept steppes of Mongolia, through the conquest of China and beyond.
Does anyone collect these Osprey books? Do you have this one? How much useful stuff do you think is here?
