    Interesting Fictional History of Genghis Kahn

    This story recounts the mongols' Gobi desert crossing, forcible entry into Xi Xia and successful military forays in China. The tale is interesting and sometimes compelling, but Genghis himself largely remains an enigma. He is relentless, but the human motivation behind his ambition is not convincingly explained. The story has the most grip when it follows the individual exploits of Genghis' brothers. I recommend this book to anyone interested in history or military conquest.

    Genghis Lords of the Bow--provides an insight to the sheer force of the Mongol Hordes of Genghis Khan

    The second in the series by Conn Iggulden takes the reader into the world of the Mongol leader, providing a fact-based continuation of the life of Genghis Kahn, which began with Birth of an Empire. This is an epic novel of significant grandeur which gives a view into the intrigue associated with the conquering of China by the Mongols, and sheer brutality which became a trademark of the Mongol armies. The scope of the battles, where thousands are slaughtered, as well as the destruction of cities gives one a detailed view into the lives of Genghis and the lives of those close to him. My enjoyment of the Lords of the Bow prompted me to purchase the hard bound version of the 3rd in the series--which I am currently reading-- as soon as it was published versus waiting until it had transitioned into a soft cover version.

    Highly Recommended

    A great read - particularly for those with an interest in past History. Conn Iggulden brings to life the lives of Genghis and his Mongol Warriors in a time longs since past in this and other books of the 'Genghis' series.

    Conn Iggulden maintains his 'faction' expertise...

    Larger than life characters are always the easiest to develop. However, Conn brings his own wit and shrewdness to this history of one of the 'molders' of the world. Well worth a read but remember it is a series so approach the task in chronological order!

    Stretching the Legends

    A interesting humanizing of the legends of the Great Khan. The series makes Genghis seem more real, I enjoyed the view of him since he was such a pivotal historical character.
