Summary (From the publisher):

At the height of his power, Genghis Khan unified four hundred tribes and was feared by men from Baghdad to Peking. Like Napoleon, he imposed a pitiless regime on the people he subjugated; like Caesar, he led his troops with a merciless code of conduct. But even the greatest of rulers have a beginning.

In Frederic Dion’s The Blue Wolf, the father of Temudjin, the future Genghis Khan, has been murdered by the Tartars, the most feared enemy of his clan. The young Temudjin burns to regain his rightful inheritance, and as a young warrior he leads a series of bloodthirsty battles where he suppresses and integrates the many tribes of his land, until at last he is crowned King of the Oceans, the Blue Wolf—Genghis Khan. But soon, his hunger for power becomes increasingly violent and leads him to experience overwhelming paranoia and a growing mistrust of old friends and allies.
