Paul Lococo, served in the US Army in the Mid-1970s and  “received his doctorate in Chinese military history at the University of Hawaii-Manoa and is currently associate professor of history at the Leeward College campus.” Lieutenant Colonel Paul Lococo is the author of Genghis Khan: History’s Greatest Empire Builder.  He is also a co-author of War In World History: Society, Technology, and War from Ancient Times to the Present, Volume 1; War In World History: Society, Technology, and War from Ancient Times to the Present, Volume 2; and, War in World History: Society, Technology and War from Ancient Times to the Present. Part IV: The Dawn of Global Warfare, 1500-1750.

According to the book description of Genghis Khan: History’s Greatest Empire Builder, “It was through bitter experience growing up on the harsh and unforgiving steppes of Mongolia that Genghis Khan learned to trust few people and to be vigilant of the personalities and events around him. As a result of an early life filled with hardship, betrayals, and constant struggle, Genghis Khan developed into a cunning and effective leader of men in battle. He became an innovative commander who disdained customary tactics when those strategies failed to bring victory.

 

Genghis Khan united the tribes of Mongolia in a way never before seen, leading them to the settled lands of Eurasia and achieving almost super-human victories over vastly larger forces. By the time of his death he had created an empire of immense proportions, larger than anything before in history. Genghis Khan addresses how the teenaged son of a minor Mongol chieftain created a military machine of extraordinary striking power and wielded it to conquer such lands as China, Central Asia, and Persia.

 

Potomac’s Military Profiles series features essential treatments of the lives of significant military figures from ancient times through the present. Both the general audience and readers with a professional interest will appreciate each volume’s concise blend of analysis and well-crafted writing. These books also serve as a starting point for those who wish to pursue a more advanced study of the subject.”

 

According to the book description of War in World History: Society, Technology and War from Ancient Times to the Present.

According to the book description of War In World History: Society, Technology, and War from Ancient Times to the Present, (Volume 2), “Designed for use at the college level as a textbook for military history courses or supplemental reading for world history courses, this text offers an introduction and original synthesis of global military history. Each chapter traces key developments in military institutions and practices set in three crucial contexts: politics and institutions; social structures and economics; and cultures. Primary sources throughout the text give students a look at the writings historians use to draw conclusions, while Issue Boxes raise and explore historiographical controversies in military history. A two-volume format follows the usual division of world and western civilization courses and allows a standard semester split of military history survey courses. Volume One covers 2000 BC through 1500 AD. Volume Two covers the dawn of global warfare in 1500 through the present.”
