The Battle of Beijing

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

By the early 13th century, Genghis Khan had defeated all of his immediate rivals and brought a number of regional tribes under his banner, including the Huns, Turks, and Tatars. His crowning achievement was his success at the Battle of Beijing, when he consolidated his control of China. As you’ll discover, the battle was decidedly one-sided from the start.
