The best book written about Genghis Khan I've read thus far.
Kim from Arlington, WA said on Goodreads:
Pretty dry stuff. Interesting history but not particularly well told in my opinion
Fahd from Islamabad, 08, Pakistan said on Goodreads:
Pulled this one out of my dad's library, and once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It describes details of Genghis Khan unlikely to be found elsewhere.
Truyen from The United States said on Goodreads:
There isn't much that is written about this man; a legend in his own right. This book expressed a pretty wealthy load of interesting information, for a short one, about The Great Khan and his legacy in the making; passing through his children and etc...
Walt from Lake Charles, LA said on Goodreads:
This is a very short and easy read on the warlord. It is not very scholarly and perhaps has some errors; but the basic storyline is accurate.

I listened to the audio book and think I would have liked to read this instead. The names of Gehghis' sub-chiefs were hard to follow (Subutai, Chipenoian - ?spelling)
In the early 13th century, a simple nomad chieftain managed to cobble together a powerful kingdom in the highlands of northern Asia, which was subsequently to challenge the greatest powers of the day. He was triumphant in all directions. This leader was Timujin, whose name meant "Iron Man". He became Genghis Khan, "Universal Ruler", the greatest conqueror ever known - a warrior feared from the British Isles to the tip of the Korean peninsula.
Known by many names, including "The Scourge of God", Genghis Khan sent his Mongol armies ranging over most of the Eurasian land mass. He first sent his hordes of cavalry crashing into China, then turned on the ancient Persian Shah before smashing the Muslim Caliphate. He left smoldering ruins and depopulated nations in his tracks. Instead of measuring his progress in miles, we measure it today by degrees of latitude and longitude.
The tough, barbaric Mongolians were welded into the finest, most highly disciplined force of mobile fighting men assembled up to that period. Mongol leadership, unlike those of other armies, was based strictly on merit. Incompetence was not tolerated among the Khan's generals. The lightning quick movements and encircling tactics of Mongol horsemen baffled their opponents time after time. In fact, under Genghis Khan, they were never defeated. At the Great Khan's death in 1227, there were hardly any worthy opponents left to fight anywhere in the world.
