Lt. Col. M. M. Qureshi, Foreword by Lt. General M. Attiqur Rehman.
The book consists of studies of fourteen battles covering the first eight centuries of the Islamic era. This period was the unique military phenomenon called the Arab Conquest and also the decline of the Arab power in Spain and in Western Mediterranean. For three of these centuries Christendom and the Muslims were engaged in the deadly struggle called the Crusades.
Unlike the accounts of early Muslim chroniclers, these studies have been made from strictly military point of view. In an essay on the law of Jihad in Islam, the author discusses the principles of Islamic warfare. The book has nineteen maps and sketches of the battlefields.
