This question asks about the different conditions for the Mongol leaders versus the average Mongol, while on campaign. During the Mongol invasion of Korea (circa 1231-1270), how much better were the generals on both sides treated then their soldiers?

  • I do not understand the question, what are you looking at when you say "conditions" -- titles, size of army, food, etc? As it stands, this question too broad for me, and I don't feel like writing a book-sized answer. If it's just focused on food, then No, in general, when campaigning (fighting), there is no 'special treatment' other than respecting the commanders (not family).

  • I don't mean food specifically. I am more generally asking about food, living spaces, and health.
