27. September 1990 Elite (Buch 30)
Of all the conquerors who swept out of Central Asia, two names stand out in European memory – Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan the Mongol. Both are remembered for massacres and devastation; yet whereas Genghis is also famous for the laws he imposed on half of Asia and for the trade which flourished under Mongol rule, Attila's notoriety seems unrelieved by positive achievements. But what was Attila's short-lived empire really like? What happened to the Huns afterwards, and what role did the nomads of Central Asia play in the centuries between Attila and Genghis Khan?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nomads of Central Asia 19. Juli 2002
Von Munir - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Even if only the tip of the iceberg, Nicolle's work is certainly enjoyable for readers with only a casual interest in the subject. Despite its title, this book deals not particularly with the Huns, but with the Turco-Mongol nomads of Central Asia in general (the author adds in the forest peoples of Siberia). The influence that these hardy horsemen of the steppes had on military science and even chivalry was staggering. These people, it would seem, practically invented warfare. Even the oath on the sword taken by European knights was apparently borrowed from the nomad Turks. Nicolle's general discussion is followed by profiles of the nomad groups between the Huns and Genghis Khan (Kipchaks, Bulgars, Seljuks, Karakhanids), including cultural details (they were no mere barbarians). The color drawings were beautiful and intricate, right down to the tiny brass bells decorating the Turkic warrior's spear. Overall, it's a colorful and fascinating introduction to the nomads of Central Asia.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Just the tip of the iceberg 10. März 2001
Von ottoman - Veröffentlicht auf
Osprey books are mainly aimed at wargamers who who want to know what their armies should look like - hence the emphasis is on glossy exciting artwork. This book certainly scores in that department, and it's also well written & researched, as you'd expect from David Nicolle. He digs up a number of surprising & unusual details, eg the fact that the Huns had become an infantry army by the time they invaded Gaul & the Pechenegs being described as "clean-shaven" (funny, I thought they were famous for their shaggy beards!) Weak points include a rather amateur-looking map of the steppes which doesn't really help you to follow the text & some very poor & unclear photos (often a problem with Osprey). I was disappointed too by the lack of info about wagon laagers & (Pecheneg) war wagons. But I guess the main problem is that its trying to cover so much in too few pages. Obviously nobody's going to write an Osprey book just on the Pechenegs or the Khazars etc but it can be quite frustrating to read abook that only gives "the tip of the iceberg".

3.0 von 5 Sternen Wrong title 18. Dezember 2006
Von Anibal Madeira - Veröffentlicht auf
Although this book clarifies several issues and raises the debate in certain subjects (like the Hsung-Nu; are they the ancestors of the Huns, even with all the different physical, social and cultural differences?), it suffers of a major doesn't have almost anything on the Huns, and only half a page and a colour plate on Attila and his army; considering that the title is "Attila and the Nomad Hordes" this is a problem (and the re-issue under the name "Attila the Hun" is outright lying").

If titled just "Nomad Hordes", this would be a 4 or 5 stars, because it is very informative (considering the space limitations), fun to read, and the colour plates are McBride at his best.

Buy it if you want to have a general idea about Turco-Mongol, Khazar, Pecheneg and other horse peoples of the steppe; it's worth the price.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good For Its Brevity. 14. April 2006
Von SUPPORT THE ASPCA. - Veröffentlicht auf
A quick enjoyable read with fine artwork. The text jumps around and does not focus enough on the titles subject. Still it is a good book for begining students and wargamers. These various nomads were clearly an intriguing, tough, and deadly opponents to all who had the misfortune of battling them. Thankfully, they usually did not have the ability and tenacity for long sieges otherwise Civilization as we know it may have been wiped out.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Source 23. Juni 2005
Von Saif T. Beg - Veröffentlicht auf
This is a very good source for western readers to learn about the Huns without them going into to much details. It is a good source for thier tatics, weapons and other stuff. A 5/5 for this one.
