Tareekh-e-Saltanat-e-Mughliya (Zaheeruddin Baber) is Urdu Translation of Babur the Tiger, First of Great Moguls . Babur was the founder of the Mughal dynasty, an empire of wealth and splendor, sumptuous palaces and cities, exotic flower gardens and elaborate ceremonies. They were known for their love of learning and science, their munificent patronage of the arts-and of ruthless family struggles for succession. Babur, the son of Dinar Sheikh was born in 1483 and as this well researched biography traces, he was an ambitious prince turned adventurer. Babur was not only a remarkable soldier but also a line poet. This book is an entertainingly written history of the aggressive genius of Babur.
Lamb has an interesting writing style that turns a historical study into a novel. He adds dialogue; but the reader cannot tell where Babur's memoirs end and the author's interpretation begin. Certainly a fascinating look at how a nomadic group of Mongols decides to move from the steppes and settle down in a hostile agrarian land. Lamb has always been a scholar quite interested in the East, its inhabitants become real living people, our peers, and then he draws the characters, situations, and forces that build up a completely new, unseen, unheard of, historical movement.

Harold Albert Lamb (September 1, 1892 - April 9, 1962) was an American historian, screenwriter, short story writer, and novelist.
Lamb was born in Alpine, New Jersey. He attended Columbia University, where his interest in the peoples and history of Asia began. Lamb's tutors at Columbia included Carl Van Doren and John Erskine. Lamb built a career with his writing from an early age. He got his start in the pulp magazines, quickly moving to the prestigious Adventure magazine, his primary fiction outlet for nineteen years. In 1927 he wrote a biography of Genghis Khan, and following on its success turned more and more to the writing of non-fiction, penning numerous biographies and popular history books until his death in 1962 in Rochester, N.Y. The success of Lamb's two volume history of the Crusades led to his discovery by Cecil B. DeMille, who employed Lamb as a technical advisor on a related movie, The Crusades. Lamb spoke French, Latin, Persian, and Arabic, and, by his own account, a smattering of Manchu-Tartar.
Lamb's prose was direct and fast-paced, in stark contrast to that of many of his contemporary adventure writers. His stories were well-researched and rooted in their time, often featuring real historical characters, but set in places unfamiliar and exotic to most of the western audience reading his fiction.
