Genghis Khan by John Man

Book Description

How he united the deeply divided Mongol peoples and went on to rule an empire that stretched from China in the east to Poland in the west (one substantially larger than Rome's at its zenith) is an epic tale of martial genius and breathtaking cruelty. John Man's towering achievement in this book, enriched by his experiences in China and Mongolia today, is to bring this little-known story vividly and viscerally to life.

Amazons by John Man Amazons, Hardback (June 2017)

The Amazons were fierce horse-riding female warriors. Equal to men in battle, legend has it they would cut off their breasts to improve their archery skills and routinely killed their boy children to purify their ranks. This book restores them to their rightful position as one of the most feared and revered armies the world has ever known.

Saladin by John Man Saladin, Paperback (April 2016)

Saladin remains one of the most iconic figures of his age. As the man who united the Arabs and saved Islam from Christian crusaders in the 12th century, he is the Islamic world's preeminent hero. Charting his rise to power, his struggle to unify the warring factions of his faith, this book explores the enduring legacy of this champion of Islam.

Mongol Empire by John Man Mongol Empire, Paperback (April 2015)

Genghis Khan is one of history's immortals: a leader of genius, driven by an inspiring vision for peaceful world rule.
