 World History Connected | Vol. 2 No. 2| Book Review
Throughout this section, Weatherford provides the reader with a very good sense of the rise of Chinggis Khan to power and how the Mongols viewed warfare, which is to say, honor was not in the methods of war, but rather in gaining victory.
Furthermore, Weatherford does a splendid job of illustrating that Chinggis Khan was not a born military genius, a label that is often and understandably applied to the Mongol leader, but rather he learned from his mistakes and from the lessons of others and then applied the lessons.
For instance, in discussing the emir Timur (Tamerlane) (1336-1405), as a successor to Chinggis Khan, Weatherford states that Timur captured the sultan of the Seljuk kingdom in modern Turkey.

Although Genghis Khan (more properly known as Chinggis Khan), is mainly thought of in negative terms in the West, he is one of history's more charismatic and dynamic leaders.
The fact that Genghis Khan was able to command a place in history is perhaps more amazing than the deeds that earned him fame as much of his life prior to 1200 was fraught with hardship.
Genghis Khan's greatest accomplishments, however, cannot be counted in terms of territory or victories, but in the presence of a Mongol nation and culture.

 ORIAS Lesson Plan: Chingis Khan
Chingis Khan's first name can also be spelled Chinggis, Genghis, Genghiz, Jengiz, or Tchingis—depending on the language in which it was written and on conventions of transliteration, and his name may be written with a hyphen between the two words.

And Chingis Khan capitalized on his opponent's fears: when the city of Bukhara (located in modern-day Uzbekistan) was sacked during one of the battles against the Khorezm Shah, Chingis Khan announced inside the mosque, "I am the punishment of God.
