The first book in the Empire of the Moghul series: chronicling the rise and fall of the Moghul rulers of India, beginning with Babur who swept in from Central Asia to found one of the most powerful dynasties in history. Babur is determined to equal his great ancestor, Tamburlaine, whose conquests stretched from Delhi to the Mediterranean, from wealthy Persia to the wild Volga. But he is dangerously young to inherit a crown and treasonous plots, tribal rivalries, rampaging armies and ruthlessly ambitious enemies will threaten his destiny, his kingdom, even his survival.

The qualities of a hero, of how he stands strong through all the problems and how he fights for his rights, truly makes you enter into hero worshipping for Babur. The action scenes of how the armies fought and how each step is taken will keep you riveted till the end. I would recommend the book to all the history lovers and to everyone who loves fiction and I am sure they would love the gripping story. It is really well written and engaging book whicch stays true to the real events but makes them interesting with some fictional elements.
The only issue is the pacing of the most of it is unavoidable as Baburnama had huge a time jump in between as far as I know with the time jumps. The batlle scenes are pretty well written with the general battle strategy outlined perfectly, wish they were longer though. Definately worth buying if you are interested in Mughal History.

Since i go a month ago but had not read becoz bad experience! The first in a series is usually the best and so is the case here.
Well written weaving fiction and fact makes for a gripping read. Babar has always been a shadowy figures in school history books and this book gives him many more dimensions. The binding was quite bad Its a very well written book But at the some parts of the book, the story fails to grip you Overall a good book and a must read for fans of the moghul dynasty.
A good start for a series. Every character was sketched excellently. Made history very interesting and brilliantly narrated. Even adding new characters made the story connected.
Looking forward to complete the whole series. Felt like reading a pure 12th STD history ,little diversion should have been added ,but full for war noting else. I took a while to warm up to the style of writing, but then it grew on me. At one stage, the book becomes an unputdownable thriller. Thoroughly enjoyed it! See all reviews from India. Top international reviews.
I read this book based on a recommendation from someone who knew I had recently visited India. I had found the buildings and history fascinating, too much to absorb on a short guided tour, and this book helped to set some aspects in a realistic context.
Because it is based on fact it helped to clarify a small part of the history of a small part of the huge continent of India, that I was fortunate to visit. The story was compelling, I had to keep reading to find out more about Babur's exploits.
I look forward to reading the next book to find out what happened to his sons. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. I found this book very informative and enjoyed the way the it was written. An easy read, based in fact but not too full of detail. A sweeping historical novel of life of the first moghul emperor Babur. I had no knowledge of this region or it's history so found the book very interesting. Not bad, good powers of description. Detailed, some intrigue, quite enjoyed it - conjures up visions of scenes quite well.
One battle much the same as another - inevitably. Be warned the sequel is more of the same and more of the same and more of the same. Great book to read before my holiday to NW India - could imagine all of the historical figures in the palaces and forts we visited.
Load more international reviews. Just back from India so this is a good easy read to re-cap on all that was learnt on the trip. Very clear and explicit and a good story line with correct facts. A easy introduction to the fascinating history of the Moghuls in India.
This book is a good stand alone read, but also sets the scene for the truly great stories of the succeeding characters in India's history. Great read and I will show it to my mates. I sure will buy another by him with no worries. Rutherford tells a good story that once started is almost impossible to put down.
Looking forward to starting the next. Can't wait for the next, just waiting for some pennies. Excellent read totally immersed me in a historical time warp.
Smooth and Easy to read.

Nonetheless Humayun successfully holds his father's empire for nearly ten years and conquers Gujarat before he suffers several setbacks that nearly cost him his throne.
