Do not want to offend anyone.
Is it true that the Great Wall of China at the initial stage consisted of packed earth?
Perhaps only this can explain that the Mongol invaders somehow overcame her.

Here's some more food for thought.
It turns out that tourists usually show a section of the Great Wall, located 60 km north-west of Beijing. This is the area of Mount Badaling (Badaling), the length of the wall is 50 km away. The wall is in excellent condition, which is not surprising - its reconstruction at the site was carried out in the 50s of the 20th century. In fact, the wall was rebuilt, although states that on the old foundations."

If the wall was in such a state, as in the photo, why Japanese do not have arranged her line of defense?
Why her memoirs do not mention in his memoirs? In the end I did not manage to find a wall of photos taken before the fiftieth year of the twentieth century.
Maybe the point is that the Great Wall has evolved into ruins or, simpler, its never existed?
Maybe the Great wall of China consisted of a chain of earthen ramparts and fortresses of clay?
And tourists show a clear new building near Beijing.


I present to you what we found.
Apparently this is the real Great Wall of China:














As you can see with your own eyes is very different from that built specifically for tourists.
