Tamerlane : sword of Islam, conqueror of the world by Nicholas Rowe( Book )

3 editions published in 1790 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tamerlane (1336-1405) - the successor to Genghis Khan - ranks with Alexander the Great as one of the world's most celebrated conquerors. The details of his life are scarcely known in the West. The name "Tamerlane" is actually a corruption of "Temur the Lame," combining his Asian name with a reference to a crippling injury suffered in his youth. He was born in obscurity and poverty in Central Asia and spent his youth as a sheep stealer and petty thief. Yet by the time he was thirty, he had usurped control of his local tribe and soon transformed his fledgling army into a conquering horde." "Tamerland and his army blazed through Asia, razing cities, torturing captives, and massacring enemies. Many who dared defy him were decapitated, and towers of severed heads soon became chilling monuments to his power. Over the ruins of conquered Baghdad, Tamerlane had his soldiers erect a pyramid of 90,000 enemy heads. Sweeping through Central Asia, sacking, and then rebuilding cities, Tamerlane gradually imposed an iron rule and a refined culture over a vast territory - from Syria to India, from the Mediterranean to Siberia. Author Justin Marozzi traveled in the footsteps of this infamous and enigmatic conqueror, and he draws on his observations to reveal in detail the story of Tamerlane's vast empire."--Jacket
