Aprašymas

'West puts the battle in its historical context, and shows how it set the course of history for more than a thousand years.' Piers Paul Read

732.

The future of Europe is held in the balance.

A Frankish force, assembled at speed, ready themselves to resist an army from the largest empire the world has ever seen.

The Franks and Arabs give battle, between the cities of Poitiers and Tours.

Would France become part of the sophisticated Muslim world to the south, or remain in the control of the Christian barbarians?

The battle proves bloody, a clash of arms and civilisations.

With the west lying in ruins after the fall of Rome, Charles Martel's victory would become the defining battle of the age, leading a chronicler soon after to describe the defenders by a new term -'Europeans'.

In this gripping and informed account Ed West records the rise of the Islamic Empire, the emergence of the Franks in the ashes of Rome, and the events leading to the fateful day when Europe's future was decided close to the river Loire.

Ed West is an author, journalist and blogger who has written for the Daily Telegraph, Catholic Herald, Evening Standard, The Times, Daily Express, Standpoint and the Spectator. He wrote a regular blog first for the Daily Telegraph and later for the Spectator, described by Peter Oborne as 'one of the most interesting of the rising generation of political writers'. He is also the author of a number of history books, the latest of which, Iron, Fire and Ice, looks at the historical inspiration for Game of Thrones.
