Summary
He was found fit by God to found a faith, and he was found fit by humans to found an army. Muhammed's path as a prophet is well-documented and analyzed, but this is the first assessment of his skills as a military leader. Gabriel (politics and history emeritus, US Army War College) closely examines the most significant decade in Muhammed's military career, which included eight major battles, 18 raids, and 38 other military operations. Gabriel finds Muhammed's approach to strategy to be revolutionary, and that his grasp of command structures enabled his successors to establish and maintain the core of the Islamic empire. Gabriel describes Muhammed's historical and social contexts, the strategic setting during his life and Arab conquests after his death, his raids and a range of his military campaigns and battlefields.
