MUHAMMAD
Islam’s First Great General
By Richard A. Gabriel
 An examination of Muhammad’s life as a military leader 
That Muhammad succeeded as a prophet is undeniable; a prominent militaryhistorian now suggests that he might not have done so had he not also been agreat soldier.Best known as the founder of a major religion, Muhammad was also Islam’sfirst great general. While there have been numerous accounts of Muhammad theProphet, this is the first military biography of the man.In
Muhammad: Islam’s First Great General 
, Richard A. Gabriel shows us a war-rior never before seen in antiquity—a leader of an all-new religious movementwho in a single decade fought eight major battles, led eighteen raids, and plannedthirty-eight other military operations. Gabriel’s study portrays Muhammad as arevolutionary who introduced military innovations that transformed armies andwarfare throughout the Arab world.Gabriel analyzes the environment in which Muhammad lived and the religionhe inspired as they relate to his military achievements. Gabriel explains howMuhammad changed the social composition of Arab armies by replacing tradi-tional ways of fighting with a new command structure.Muhammad’s transformation of Arab warfare enabled his successors to establishthe core of the Islamic empire—an accomplishment that, Gabriel argues, wouldhave been militarily impossible without Muhammad’s innovations. Richard A.Gabriel challenges existing scholarship on Muhammad’s place in history andoffers a viewpoint not previously attempted.
Volume 11 in the Campaigns and Commanders seriesRichard A. Gabriel
is a military historian and Distinguished Adjunct Professorin the Department of History and War Studies at the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario. He is a retired U.S. Army officer and the author of forty books.
