Synopsis by Alice Day
The first of the Great Moghuls was Babur, who possessed the bloodlines of both Genghis Khan and Tamburlaine. Babur was able to defeat his enemies easily because he had access to a technology unknown to many -- firearms. He and his descendants would rule India for more than 300 years, and their reputation for an opulent lifestyle was known throughout Europe. Great Moghuls: Babur documents the leadership styles of the Moghuls, and looks at their achievements in architecture, as mosques and other decorative structures appeared throughout their empire.
