a great find,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tamerlane: Sword of Islam, Conqueror of the World (Paperback)
i had never before heard of Tamerlane before i saw this book, and after reading the synopsis i thought this could be very interesting indeed. as soon as i started reading this i could not put the book down at all, although i didnt like the parts when the author kept coming back to talk about a stage version in England... i could not help thinking how great it must have been to live in Samarkand at the time of Tamerlane and how it must have felt to see him come back to the city time and again in triumph.
