Publisher's Summary

Genghis Khan was arguably one of the most decisive figures in medieval history. He is responsible for the creation and management of one of history's largest empires. He did things during this rise to power, and the subsequent conquests that followed it, that will be remembered in history for their brutality and bloodshed, giving him a mixed reputation across the world. This biography explores the life of Genghis Khan, breaking down the benevolent unifier and leader, and the horrifically violent warlord that he was.

The book traces the entirety of Genghis Khan's life, beginning with his humble beginnings as Temujin. The harrowing political instability which Temujin found himself born in gave way to his conquests across Mongolia, unifying the country with unprecedented sincerity. Upon taking power, Temujin became Genghis Khan, and set out to conquer what he was likely hoping would be the entire world. We follow the life of Genghis Khan and his Mongol army through their bloody campaigns on all borders of the rapidly expanding Mongolian Empire, and also what came of the empire after Genghis Khan's death.

It is a truly magnificent story marked by ambition and violence. In a relatively short time, one man's willpower was able to change the world in sweepingly dramatic ways, and this biography paints the exciting picture of one of medieval history's most epic sagas.
