Description
 
Erik Hildinger (au). The nomadic peoples of central Asia -- Huns, Bulgars, Magyars, Mongols -- are still known for their legendary fighters: Attila, Genghis Khan, & Timur Lenk (Tamerlane). Less studied & understood, though, is the remarkable effectiveness of these horse-archer armies’ battle techniques. For 2,000 years, these mounted terrors were an unstoppable force in Asia & Europe. Here is an introduction to the most important of these raiders as well as a host of other tribes. Summarizes what is known about the origins, travels, achievements, & influences of each of these warrior folk & adds useful material on horse archery, horse breeding, & the cavalry tactics of both the steppe riders & their usually unsuccessful opponents. Maps & illustrations.
