Great Overview of Mongol History

Unlike some popular titles, this 2 title audio book is both expansive and objective. Genghis Khan was an innovative leader with many positive attributes in terms of religious tolerance and women's rights but he was also a bloodthirsty killer. I enjoyed the structure and narration of both titles.

Wonderfully narrated, classic (true!) tale

Really enjoyed listening to this version of the story of the rise of Genghis Khan and his Mongol Empire. Well narrated and evenly paced, it's just as the title claims: captivating.

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.

Breath taking

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.

Nice military history

Only a fluke event saved Europe from destruction at the hands of the Mongols. LISTEN to this audiobook and find out how Europe directed to remain in Europe.

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

Very Comprehensive Book

The Mongol experience of battle is also detailed, including concepts like tactical false retreat, strategic false retreat, counter-attacks, reconnaissance en force, siege weapons and armies on the march.
