The battle of Kalka 1223, in which the Mongol generals Subotai and Jebei (with orders from Genghiz Khan) utterly crushed the russian military alliance, truly was one of the more decisive battles in european history, since it subsequently led to the devastating invasion of central europe in 1241.
The actual account of the Battle of Kalka River is a bit hazy due to the paucity of sources - the exact location of the battle is not even known - and Dr. Nicolle covers it in less than 6 pages of text.

 Pamela Sargent: Climb the Wind: a novel of another America - an infinity plus review
This was centrally expressed in the long historical novel Ruler of the Sky (1993); but however fantastic the conquests of the Khans were in actuality, the SF writer's instinct is to extrapolate them further.
In her superb novella "The Sleeping Serpent" (1992), Sargent postulated the scenario of Subadai continuing his advance at that time, and establishing vast European Khanates; when the American Indians are apprised of the example of their long-lost Asian brothers, they emulate their victories, and nomadic hegemony forms a solid chain across the Northern Hemisphere.
His project of being to the USA as Genghiz Khan was to China is historically risible.
