Khubilai Kan’s Lost Fleet

Khubilai Khan’s Lost Fleet by James Delgado is the true story of the destruction of Khubilai Khan’s (Ghengis’s grandson) huge navy after he tried to attack Japan with his inherited fleet. The outnumbered Japanese prayed, and the next day Khan’s nave was destroyed by a divine wind – the kamikaze. A second, bigger attack was also foiled by the kamikaze. Marine archaeologist Delgado works out what really happened, by piecing together shipwrecks, archeological excavations, hand-painted scrolls, temple inscriptions, woodblock prints, and historical records from Japan, China and Vietnam.
