In the early 13th century, a simple nomad chieftain managed to cobble together a powerful kingdom in the highlands of northern Asia, which was subsequently to challenge the greatest powers of the day. He was triumphant in all directions. This leader was Timujin, whose name meant Iron Man. He became Genghis Khan, Universal Ruler, the greatest conqueror ever known - a warrior feared from the British Isles to the tip of the Korean peninsula.

Known by many names, including The Scourge of God, Genghis Khan sent his Mongol armies ranging over most of the Eurasian land mass. He first sent his hordes of cavalry crashing into China, then turned on the ancient Persian Shah before smashing the Muslim Caliphate. He left smoldering ruins and depopulated nations in his tracks. Instead of measuring his progress in miles, we measure it today by degrees of latitude and longitude.

The tough, barbaric Mongolians were welded into the finest, most highly disciplined force of mobile fighting men assembled up to that period. Mongol leadership, unlike those of other armies, was based strictly on merit. Incompetence was not tolerated among the Khan's generals. The lightning quick movements and encircling tactics of Mongol horsemen baffled their opponents time after time. In fact, under Genghis Khan, they were never defeated. At the Great Khan's death in 1227, there were hardly any worthy opponents left to fight anywhere in the world. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eugene Wainwright | 6/29/2013

    " I did enjoy this book for its informative value. Though it was not as impartial as I would have preferred in a historical account it was worth the time if one cares to know more of this enigmatic figure... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ed Dodson | 1/27/2013

    " I listened to the audio book and think I would have liked to read this instead. The names of Gehghis' sub-chiefs were hard to follow (Subutai, Chipenoian - ?spelling) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fahd | 9/3/2012

    " Pulled this one out of my dad's library, and once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It describes details of Genghis Khan unlikely to be found elsewhere. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walt | 7/19/2012

    " This is a very short and easy read on the warlord. It is not very scholarly and perhaps has some errors; but the basic storyline is accurate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noreen | 6/4/2012

    " First published in 1927. I probably read in 1950's. This book made me a lifelong fan of Genghis Khan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 4/21/2012

    " Kai and I are read this in homeschool, Genghis gets a bad rap in history, but he really was an amazing leader. His story teaches how to be a great leader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Truyen Nguyen | 2/1/2012

    " There isn't much that is written about this man; a legend in his own right. This book expressed a pretty wealthy load of interesting information, for a short one, about The Great Khan and his legacy in the making; passing through his children and etc... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 9/26/2011

    " I give this book a 5 because it was the first bookI ever read about Genghis Khan and Central Asia when I was 11. It was written in 1927 and is a "Histography" book based on The Secret History. But, for me it is a great book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Larry | 7/5/2011

    " Mostly interesting but with several pockets of intensely boring. The audiobook, however, let my attention drift in and out when there was something boring, and I was able to finish the audiobook. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Troy | 5/29/2011

    " Interesting at times, but definitely dry for a majority of the book. I learned a little about this legendary conquerer, but it was a stuggle to get through. "

    " Pretty dry stuff. Interesting history but not particularly well told in my opinion "
