Empire of the Moghul: Raiders From the North : Raiders of from the North (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.233

Empire Of The Moghul: Raiders From The North is the first of five historical adventure fiction books written by Alex Rutherford, which chronicles the reign of the Moghul Empire in medieval India, starting with King Babur.

Summary Of The Book

Empire Of The Moghul: Raiders From The North, is the first of five books in Rutherford’s Empire Of The Moghul series. It revolves around the founder of the Mughal empire, Babur and covers his life and achievements. Rutherford’s novel is based on Baburnama, Babur’s autobiography. The text examines his campaigns, his reign, his conquest of India, and the eventual loss of his kingdom.

Babur, was a descendant of Genghis Khan and Timur. He often dreamt of achieving the same glory as his ancestors, but he knew he had to begin by claiming his home region.

Babur, was the child of Umar Shaikh, ruler of the Ferghana region. In 1494, an unusual accident kills his father, leaving Babur as the heir to the throne, at just twelve years of age. Babur is steadfastly determined to rule as his ancestors once did, such as Tamburlaine, whose actions had an impact from Delhi to Persia, and all the way to Volga. However, many opposed Babur’s claim to the throne. Many factions in the kingdom began to plot against him, taking sheer advantage of his young age and inexperience. Since Ferghana was always under threat from the Uzbeks, and Shaibani Khan, many felt that Babur was inept to rule. Nevertheless, Babur and his chief bodyguard Wazir, worked together and eliminated all those who opposed his rule, including his Grand Vizier. With the support of his mother and grandmother, who were very influential in court, Babur became the rightful King of Ferghana.

After claiming the Kingdom of Ferghana, Babur’s attention turned to Samarkhand. He wanted to reconquer this city, which had once been the capital of Timur. Although Babur does capture it, the Uzbeks regain it once more. Then Babur’s attention turn towards Kabul. Eventually, he conquers a large part of India, successfully establishing his dynasty, and the Moghul Empire.

Empire Of The Moghul: Raiders From The North, was published in 2010, by Headline Review.

Excellent! ... get it.

In dry text books of history you get literal facts, the corresponding insipid dates... and objective information. Data which is cold, forbearing and soon forgotten. Here Rutherford fills in the flesh amidst the dry bones of cold history. Babur crosses the hindu kush... what he feels and thinks, what problems his troops face... how cold and difficult is the journey. Interesting detail fills up the otherwise skippable factual detail. High emotion... the why and why not litter the landscape. So much so you end up feeling sorry for Babur when he reminces about his friends and family whom he has... ()

High emotion... the why and why not litter the landscape. So much so you end up feeling sorry for Babur when he reminces about his friends and family whom he has lost and the simple free life he once lived.
It could have been more detailed at the probable cost of becoming heavy… but the author maintains a excited read at the cost of a more beautific (and hence limited) read.
Rutherford maintains a balance between drama and fact... going into characters and happenings to an extent to make them interesting, but at the same time letting them remain credible.
A very nice book and a thrilling one, where every page is a turner. The narrative seldom if ever slacks and you would get a basic historical insight as a bonus.
I finished this one yesterday night and am expecting the next (brother in arms) by afternoon today. A nice touch of superb delivery by flipkart.

Disheartening

I had ordered Empire of the Moghul: Raiders from the North with such excitement that's inexplicable.I absolutely love historical and mythological reads. The book was delivered as informed and I was so happy to have got it.However,that is where EVERYTHING GOOD ENDED.

As I immersed myself into the gripping chronicle, I couldn't help but notice that the quality of pages wasn't upto the mark. Saddened as I was, today I was completely shaken by what happened next. The books' binding gave away leaving behind loose pages.

Couldn't help but lament on the condition of my first book of the quintet. Having done so well in the past I can only complain for my collection now has a book thats HALF BOUND and hence HALF SPECIAL.

Grows old

This is a tale that starts off well, with vivid descriptions of the people, the area and the action. However, it is a tale that grows weary with repetition as time progresses and you grow a bit disenchanted. By the end, I was just waiting for the end to come so that I could finish what I had started.

It's an interesting tale, but one that drags on as well.

Won't recommend it to others

It was an impulse buy. I have always been looking out for dramatized history wherever available, and a series on Mughal empire was inviting. However the read turned out to be very boring and at times lengthy. The narration and choice of words are very amateurish and I have ended up tossing it aside many a times. Not exactly a page turner for a best seller. Won't recommend it to others.

Underwhelming.

The plot and timeline makes for a potential bestselling epic, but Rutherford's writing fails to keep it all together. I quit reading halfway because it got too stale and underwhelming. Money and time not well spent.

So, if you want literary satisfaction, buy something else. If you want to try something different from the others in the genre, go ahead, you might have a different experience.

Cheers.

Historical Masterpiece

I started reading this book reluctantly worrying that this might be boring but as i progressed through the pages i became absorbed in this book. The writer (i think its fictional name) has presented this book in an interesting way .
The whole life story of Babur is present in this book and after...
