    In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the "Sea Peoples" invaded Egypt. The pharaoh’s army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Kingdoms fell like dominoes over the course of just a few decades. No more Minoans or Mycenaeans. No more Trojans, Hittites, or Babylonians.

    If you could sum up 1177 B.C. in three words, what would they be?

    Very interesting, follows history in a linear progression which makes it easier for the listener to follow along.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 1177 B.C.?

    The start of the audiobook presented itself kind of like a mystery, who were the Sea People? and did they brought down the empires from the ancient past?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last chapters explains how the demise of the empires probably occurred, which had me thinking of my own theories throughout the audio book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I'm a driver and I listen to Audio books while I drive, so its pretty hard to listen in one sitting but its pretty engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    So far its one of my favorite Audio Books, I've already heard it twice already. I had very little knowledge of the Period and of the empires mentioned but now I have a better understanding. Highly recommend this Audio Book for people that have limited knowledge of the time period covered, The author gives many archaeological facts about the sites uncovered that makes you feel like if he was their!!!! The narrator is clear and easy to follow.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Would you listen to Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World again? Why?

    Great audiobook learned a lot, so many facts and details yet easy to digest that I want to hear the audiobook again!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World?

    The specific details regarding the Life of Genghis Khan and the struggles he faced in he's early childhood were my favorite. Also the invasion of eastern Europe and meticulous preparations the Mongols approach to warfare.


    Any additional comments?

    The Narrator provides a clear and outstanding narration, and the author provides a rich documentary about the life Of Genghis Khan, the Mongol race and of the events that occurred at the time and the shaping of Euoro-Asia. Highly recommend The Audiobook to anyone who has an interest in History and learn about the secret history of the Mongol Empire.
