1928. Eight hundred or so years ago, a man almost conquered the earth. He made himself master of half the known world and inspired humankind with a fear that lasted for generations. Genghis Khan, meaning universal ruler, was a man difficult to measure by ordinary standards. When he marched with his army, it was by degrees of latitude and longitude instead of miles; cities in his path were often obliterated and rivers diverted from their courses; deserts were populated with the fleeing and dying, and after he had passed, wolves and ravens were often the sole living things in a once populous area.

Review: Genghis Khan: Emperor of All Men

User Review  - Neale Aslett - Goodreads

A fascinating read of a much maligned ruler, a man far superior to his European contemporaries, a man who shook the world in his passing and created a peoples hitherto fragmented into warring tribes. An easy read (for those with a grasp of history) and a fulfilling one to all others. Read full review
