    Book Summary

    Tamerlane, the Ottomans, the Mughals, the Manchus, the British, the Soviets, the Japanese and the Nazis - all built empires they hoped would last forever: all were destined to fail. This book shows how their empire building created the world.

    Tamerlane, the Ottomans, the Mughals, the Manchus, the British, the Soviets, the Japanese and the Nazis - All built empires they hoped would last forever: all were destined to fail.
