    A couple of very good books by John Man. 1. Genghis Khan 2. Kublai Khan. A couple of years back I was in Budapest, the western most edge of the Mongol empire (although they raided further). It took me 12 hours by plane to get there from Beijing. The Mongols did it on horse back.

    PS John Man has other great books. Recommended for anyone who likes their history to come alive

    Always interesting reading about China in the past, never a dull moment.
