"This book is essential reading for anyone seeking a broader foundation of knowledge about Islamic military history and traditions. Military history specialists will find the detailed discussion of the Quran (Koran) enlightening as the authors identify and explain the specific verses calling Muslims to arms. General readers and non-specialists will find the story of Muslim military history to be an absorbing continuum of societies in which war is deeply embedded in social and cultural traditions. Altogether, it is a very readable and clear presentation of a complex and difficult topic." -- Lt. Col. Edward J. Erickson, U.S. Army (Ret.), Author of Ordered to Die
