A Brief Book

It is a brief and general history of Mongolian Empire. The content has more narrative aspect than analytical. I think the life of Genghis Khan should have been more detailed.

Fascinating Book

I think this is the best introduction one can have on the subject and, if he is fascinated by these people and their campaigns, he should go a step further, reading James Chambers' magnificent book

it provided financing details.

It is fast and fun to understand -- in that regard, it reminds me of Livey or Herodotus. This is as highly recommended as an AUDIObook as I can think of. If, however, you need history presented with well-developed arguments and theory, state.

This is a unique, fact-filled audible about Mongol invasions of Europe that extended beyond the scope of this work. Glad I found it. Much better than other books seen on the topic over the years.

Awesome, Learning book

The thing I admired about this audiobook was the information on Genghis Khan and the Mongols' tactics, survival skills, how they practically lived on their horses. Their planning and discipline were second to none. The disadvantages to this audiobook are that you require more info on Genghis Kahn would also be nice.

Discusses a brief bio of Chingis, Ogedei, and various other characters. Here we see the first hints of unrest in the Mongol royal family.

Simply powerful thought

Not a lot of details about weaponry or even tactics, but lots of conversation about the individual leaders on both sides. I banged this one out and now I appreciate who they were and how they affected Europe. I suggest it if you want that kind of quick survey.

the greatest Army in history......

The strength of the Mongol crowd was awesome and no one in Europe was able to stop it. Goes into great detail in explaining the chaos that was Europe in the 13th Century and how they were powerless to deal with the inevitable doom soon to be inflicted upon them.

Undefeated

You cannot believe the life that forged this leader into one of the greatest conquerors of all time. Suffering beyond belief. Truly an enlightening audible, masterfully acted and presented.
