 History Decided At The

Qutuz took this action not out of a misguided belief that his army could match the Mongols- he fully realized that they had little chance of survival- but because the Mamluks had been slaves all their lives, and were determined to hold onto their newly-found power until the bitter end.
Having arrived first, Qutuz and the Mamluks had time to lay a trap: they hid the bulk of their forces in the hills to either side of the narrow plain, then baited the trap with a vanguard under the command of his lieutenant, Baybars.
