"Wolf of the Plains is a historical novel from English author Conn Iggulden. It is the first book in the Conqueror series based on the Mongols of the Asian steppes"

The main focus centres around Ganghis Khan. Only a few chapters in, but it's really good so far.

As an accompaniment I'd suggest Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast series on the Mongols. Well worth a listen.


Cheers, I'll check it out


You will not go wrong there, Dan Carlin’s Wrath of the Khans is fantastic.


Add some Mongolian throat singing into the mix and you're set.



:wub: I bought their album on the strength of that performance. Wonderful stuff.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

Anyone have any Yakuza fiction they would recommend? I'm really in the mood for something like that but I've never heard of any good examples. Reading the final Witcher book at the minute so it would be good to read something completely different.
