    " "Genghis - Lords of the Bow" is the second in the trilogy based on the life of Genghis Khan who lived and conquered during the later part of the 12th century and early 13th century. Although this series of books are novels, they are historical novels based on many true and fascinating accounts that were not only recorded in part by his own people, but also by the many peoples he conquered, especially the Chinese. One of the bloodiest battles in history was in 1211 when his mongol armies defeated a vastly larger Chinese army defending a walled city five miles in circumference and with a population of a million people, a city that is now know as Beijing. Genghis was a superb strategist as well as a uniter and leader of many tribes whom he brought together as a nation at a time when this concept was relatively new. Above all, if you enjoy a great tale full of action based on many fascinating historical facts, you will thoroughly enjoy this book as well as the other books Conn Iggulden has written about Genghis Khan. By the way, many people mistake the Mongols of eastern Asia as the "Huns;" this term has come about as a mistake caused by an error in a 19th century French news article when the name "Huns" was confused with the true name for these nomadic people who were in fact Mongols. The Huns were a fierce tribe who invaded Eastern Europe from the north about six hundred years earlier. "

    " This is the second book in Iggulden's trilogy of Genghis Khan. Genghis, now master of all the Mongol tribes, sets his sights on conquering The Chin Empire, as China was known then. He takes the horde of history into a great battle against the Chinese forces at Badger Pass, and after his victory there beseiges Yenking (aka Beijing). The khan learns that, once you build a great army, you must keep it fed, not in meat and wine, but in war and victories. I was interested in learning how Iggulden handled the depiction of such a barbaric protagonist. He did it by showing that the merciless behavior of the Mongols, and the Chin, were all part of the way life was in that day, it was a "natural" action. When we look at human behavior in the last hundred years, the Nazis and the holocaust, the Khmer Rhouge and Cambodia, the Taliban and Afghanista, Bosnia, Somalis, Rwanda, we discover that mankind hasn't changed much at all over the centuries. "

    " The second in Iggulden's reconstruction of the life and depradations of Ghengis Khan. Very imaginative, lots of action (and a little philosophy). Given what must have been a dearth of source material, Iggulden has done a good job of evoking the world of Genghis. Recommended if you're interested in this particular barbarian. "
