Tamerlane: The Ultimate Warrior- Map Edition (978-1-892264-20-6)
In this Third Edition, little-known fourteenth century Muslim leader who inspired a vast army of Islamic followers to swarm through central and western Asia in a conquering wave, has been captured in the first complete history using narrative form by Roy Stier.
Tamerlane, the Ultimate Warrior paints the violent and controversial true story of the swift horseman who threatened much of the Old World, crushing the Ottoman Empire and intimidating kings and emperors. A trail of devastation followed the ruthless conqueror from Delhi to Baghdad, yet incidents of mercy for his enemies revealed a benign side to Tamerlane.
In the pageantry of rulers, Tamerlane found little recognition from the historians of later centuries. Killer? Demonic? or Charismatic visionary with a flashing sword and a view of the world united under the banner of Islamic purity?
Is there a message for moderns in the story of the military genius who scythed his way through a sizable part of the known world? The readers of this book think so.
