The English reader has for the first time the opportunity to read about the great epic struggle of a small ill-equipped band of Muslims that overthrew the superpower of their day.

This is the first complete English translation of Futuhusham, the ninth century Arabic classic detailing the Muslim advance into Syria. The English reader has for the first time the opportunity to read about the great epic struggle of a small ill-equipped band of Muslims that overthrew the superpower of their day. Events only briefly mentioned in other books are graphically described here, such as the Battle of al-Yarmuk, which changed the course of world history. The great personalities of early Islam are brought to life in a unique way.
