    This third volume of Gibbon's masterpiece covers the years A.D. 1185 to A.D. 1453 and explores the rise of Islam, the Crusades, the invention of gunpowder, Genghis Khan and the Mongol invasions, the Turkish conquests, and the beginning of the Renaissance.

    Would you listen to The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Volume 3 again? Why?

    I would have to, or read it then listen again. Gibbon's history is extremely compressed and, thinly covered, as to characters and events, plus he uses indirect references which require keeping the thread that actually refers to what he is talking about. Nevertheless, it is stimulating to read further.
