There are many biographies of the Prophet. In The Generalship of Muhammad, Russ Rodgers merges original sources with the latest in military theory to examine Muhammad's military strengths and weaknesses. Incorporating military, political, and economic analyses, Rodgers focuses on Muhammad's use of insurgency warfare in seventh century Arabia to gain control of key cities such as Medina. Seeking to understand operational aspects of these world-changing battles, he provides battlefield maps and explores the supply and logistic problems that would have plagued any military leader at the time. Rodgers explains how Muhammad organized his forces and gradually built his movement against sporadic resistance from his foes. He examines the Prophet's intelligence network and the employment of what would today be called special operations forces. And he considers the possibility that Muhammad received outside support to build and maintain his movement as a means to interdict trade routes between the Byzantine Empire and the Sasanid Persians.

That Muhammad succeeded as a prophet is undeniable; a prominent military historian now suggests that he might not have done so had he not also been a great soldier. Best known as the founder of a major religion, Muhammad was also Islam’s first great general. While there have been numerous accounts of Muhammad the Prophet, this is the first military biography of the man. In Muhammad: Islam’s First Great General, Richard A. Gabriel shows us a warrior never before seen in antiquity—a leader of an all-new religious movement who in a single decade fought eight major battles, led eighteen raids, and planned thirty-eight other military operations. Gabriel’s study portrays Muhammad as a revolutionary who introduced military innovations that transformed armies and warfare throughout the Arab world. Gabriel analyzes the environment in which Muhammad lived and the religion he inspired as they relate to his military achievements. Gabriel explains how Muhammad changed the social composition of Arab armies by replacing traditional ways of fighting with a new command structure. Muhammad’s transformation of Arab warfare enabled his successors to establish the core of the Islamic empire—an accomplishment that, Gabriel argues, would have been militarily impossible without Muhammad’s innovations. Richard A. Gabriel challenges existing scholarship on Muhammad’s place in history and offers a viewpoint not previously attempted.

“The Mohammed Code is keeping me up at night. It's a terrifying book—like a horror novel. It's the best book I've read on Islam…and the most elegantly written.” David Swindle, lifestyle editor, PJ MediaAlexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, and Adolph Hitler tried to take over the world. All of them failed. Yet an illiterate desert prophet enabled his followers to hammer together an empire 11 times the size of Alexander the Great's conquests, 5 times the size of the Roman Empire, and 7 times the size of the USA. How did Mohammed pull it off? And how does his success threaten you and me? The Mohammed Code is a story you are not supposed to read.The Mohammed Code is based entirely on Islamic sources: the Quran, the Hadith, Ibn Ishaq, al Tabari, and lives of Mohammed written for Moslem eyes only by Islamic religious leaders, Islamic scholars, and Islamic journalists. The Mohammed Code tells one of the most important and riveting stories in history. The hidden story behind the headlines from shock-spots in Asia, Africa, Europe, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. And the inner secrets of the mosque down the street..If you are a Moslem and you want to be righteous, just, and pure, you are required to follow in the footsteps of Mohammed. What kind of footsteps did Mohammed leave you? His example as the commander of 65 military campaigns. His example as a participant in 27 of those battles. His example as the architect of ethnic expulsions and genocides. Explains Osama bin Laden, Mohammed was “a Prophet of Conquest.” And Pakistan's Universal Sunnah Foundation agrees. It says proudly that under Mohammed's generalship, “Islam spread on an average of 822 square kilometres per day.” Behind that conquest is an astonishing story. The story of Mohammed's life as a militant. The story of Mohammed's two favorite tools of war, “deceit” (deception) and “terror.” The story that led to the assembly of the biggest empire in human history…an empire eleven times the size of the conquests of Alexander the Great, five times the size of the Roman Empire, and seven times the size of the United States. The Mohammed Code is the story of how Mohammed laid out a simple goal--seizing the entire world. A goal so dependent on violence that one of Mohammed's leading modern interpreters, Islamic Revolutionary Iran's founding father, the Ayatollah Khomeini, says proudly that “Islam has obliterated many tribes.” The Mohammed Code tells a story unknown in the West, the story that led the Ayatollah to declare that, "Moslems have no alternative... to an armed holy war. ...Holy war means the conquest of all non Moslem territories. ...It will the duty of every able-bodied adult male to volunteer for this war of conquest, the final aim of which is to put Koranic law in power from one end of the earth to the other.” If you want to know the story of Mohammed's ten years as a militant, read The Mohammed Code. It is more than just amazing. It is a story whose aftershocks are quaking your life.

Khalid was born to be a great leader of men. This book charts his career as an illustrious and successful warrior, Khalid, first against the Muslim army, and later as leader of the Muslim army. This change of heart was something even the mighty warrior couldn't resist. His greatest struggle took place within his own heart. Influenced first by his brother's conversion to Islam, and secondly by his personal encounter wit the noble Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, Khalid could not resist the call of Islam, and became a Muslim. Throughout his life, Khalid was the personification of the advice he gave to his soldiers: "Patience is the highest virtue; defeat is feebleness; victory is only won with patience."

This classic biography is not a religious text designed to either celebrate or denigrate Islam. It looks at Mohammed as a towering figure of culture and politics, a man who achieved the extraordinary: uniting disparate Arab tribes into a more cohesive whole. This book remains an important work for anyone wishing to understand the roots of one of the most intractable sociopolitical divides-between East and West, Muslim and Christian-still haunting the world today. Author David S. Margoliouth (1858-1940), a professor of Arabic at Oxford University, worked from primary Arabic texts and omitted "all anecdotes that are obviously or most probably fabulous," resulting in a clear-headed history of a highly contentious moment in time.
