The Mongols were a group of nomadic people that had a far from good reputation. Eight centuries ago the Mongols conquered much of the known world led by Genghis Khan.

Mongol rule through the middle especially Persia. In lands such as Persia, Mongol rulers made important concessions towards local rule, even though the Mongols established the highest government positions for themselves, many Persians within government were able to keep their jobs and basically govern the Ilkanate. By displaying this toleration towards the Persians and their already established government system, the Persians were looked as almost equals to the Mongols, which kept Persian influence very prominent in the empire. This toleration also helped create a peaceful empire without rebellions and hatred directed towards the Mongols. In china, however, Mongols acted as superiors to the Chinese, stripping them of any government positions and basically separating themselves from the Chinese.

This wave was most likely to get them tired for when the mongols attacked and finished them off. Carpini mentions that the Mongols split into different groups so that some could receive rest while others fought but the opposing forces would fight day and night (Doc D).

This was a very great strategy to defeat the opposing forces. When the people fighting the Mongols got extremely tired then they would be easier to defeat and kill. They Mongols did not really exhibit any barbaric qualities in their fighting style. They did enough of what they had to do to take over the empires they were going up against.
