I loved to read about the actions and battle strategies in the book.


Barely six months after rebuilding the Mughul Empire, Humayun breaks his neck when he tumbled down a flight of stairs.

Please edit the article to focus on discussing the work rather than merely reiterating the plot. Plot also holds how treacheryhaughtiness and greediness cause the downfall of the the grand empire left by Babur but at the same time author had successfully embedded the fact that doesn’t matter how much bigger issues are they could be resolved by several waysDeath is not an answer in every case and how sometimes promises too need not be broken just for the rutherfogd of justice.

Empire of the Moghul Series by Alex Rutherford

I remember reading just a small passage on Humayun in school history books. This series of books tell about the Mongal invasion and conquering of a great deal of India in the ‘s and ‘s and their rule.
