    1 thought on “The Sword of Persia: Nader Shah, from Tribal Warrior to Conquering Tyrant

    1. I was once reading an article on Nader Shah. I found it interesting and then one article led me to another and so on. I ended up reading 5-6 articles on Persian history and Nader Shah. Thereafter , I became keen to explore more about him and the region. If you read about Nader Shah or Persian history, you will find books authored by Micheal Axworthy as a suggested reference reading. He has expertise in the subject. He was part of British Foreign and Commonwealth office and was heading the Iran [...]

    2. I first found this book by chance in West London while browsing for nothing in particular. Considering the dearth of english language material on Nader Shah and my preexisting interest in him I picked it up immediately. I read it back then (in 2009) and loved it. It became, and remains, my second favorite autobiography I have so far read. It is also, as of now, the only one I ever read twice.Axworthy takes us on a journey to the collapsing Safavid world and sets up the context for the various ma [...]

    3. I've read a fair number of history books down the years but I have tended to concentrate on the history of Europe or the Americas. I know very little about Asian history. A few months ago I was reading an online article which made reference to how, in 1739, the Mughal Empire was overrun by a Persian army led by a King Nader, and the city of Delhi was sacked in the process. I had never heard of Nader Shah and thought I should learn more about someone who was obviously a major historical figure.Na [...]

    4. "Tell them he is the son of Nader Shah the son of the sword, the grandson of the sword; until they have seventy generations instead of seven."This book was a fascinating insight into Nader Shah, the man whose military autocracy revived the independence of 18th-century Iran and brought the country back from partition between the Russians and Ottoman Turks. He brought discipline and artillery to Iranian warfare and commanded the most powerful force in the world with tactics which were later adopte [...]

    5. خوب است که تمام ایرانیان عزیز این کتاب را بخوانند. کتابی که بسیار جذاب و پرکشش، با ذکر جزئیات و دارای منابع موثق تاریخی و اسناد تازه‌یافته شده، در سال 2009 توسط یک پژوهشگر خارجی برجسته نوشته شده است. ترجمه بسیار خوبی هم دارد. این کتاب صورت واقعی سلسله منحط صفویه و برخی علل مهم سق [...]

    6. Excellent biography on the Persian Napoleon, whose intelligent use of strategy made him great and whose oriental stupidity in administration led him to the grave and Persia with him. His ruthlessness and the ruthlessness of middle easterners in general is nothing new, but the vivid descriptions and the flimsy reasoning behind some of the killing and maiming is genuinely shocking. Although it only makes it more impressive that he rose to the top in that sort of world. He was a Great man and like [...]

    7. This is a highly readable and interesting portrait of Nader Shah, an 18th century Persian warlord who rose from obscurity to become the supreme ruler of Persia. Along the way he defeated the Ottoman Turks on numerous occasions, invaded and conquered Afghanistan, moved on into India and defeated the powerful Moghul dynasty in Delhi, all the while constantly suppressing home-grown rebellions from would-be usurpers.As befitting the times, he was ruthless and capable of extraordinary cruelty but als [...]
