About the Authors
  • This is the first serious study of Tamerlane, the great nomad conqueror who rose to power in 1370 on the ruins of the Mongol Empire and led his armies on campaigns of unprecedented scope, ranging from Moscow to Delhi. As the last nomad ruler to unite the steppe regions of Eurasia, Tamerlane marks the transition from the era of nomad conquest and rule to the modern ascendency of the settled world.

    • Highly accessible account of a key figure in the history of conquest and warfare
    • Only available single-book, full account of this extraordinary individual
    • Good insight into tribal politics of the time
