From his seat in Xanadu, the great Mongol Emperor of China, Kubla Khan, had long plotted an invasion of Japan. However, it was only with the acquisition of Korea, that the Khan gained the maritime resources necessary for such a major amphibious operation. Written by expert Stephen Turnbull, this book tells the story of the two Mongol invasions of Japan against the noble Samurai. Using detailed maps, illustrations, and newly commissioned artwork, Turnbull charts the history of these great campaigns, which included numerous bloody raids on the Japanese islands, and ended with the famous kami kaze, the divine wind, that destroyed the Mongol fleet and would live in the Japanese consciousness and shape their military thinking for centuries to come.

Each book analyses a major battle or campaign, from outbreak to conclusion, taking stock of the opposing forces at crucial points in the fighting. Full colour 3-D birds-eye views, battle scenes and maps help you to follow the action. Books in the Osprey Campaign series contain up to six pages of battlescene artwork, and colour and black and white images throughout. They provide an important reference resource for history enthusiasts, academics and wargamers.
