“An excellent analysis of Muhammad as a general, placing his battles within the context of military history, and a good introduction to the life of the founder of Islam.”—David Cook, author of Understanding Jihad
“Provides an essential understanding to those wanting to know the history that shapes modern insurgencies.”—Maj. Christopher Johnson, U.S. Army
The Generalship of Muhammad charts a new path by merging original sources with the latest in military theory in order to highlight the Prophet Muhammad’s military strengths and weaknesses. Muhammad’s campaigns, military thought, and strategy are examined in order to trace his rise from humble beginnings to the creation of a movement that would lead him to become the virtual ruler of Arabia.

Incorporating military, political, and economic analyses, Russ Rodgers investigates Muhammad’s use of insurgency warfare in the seventh century to gain control of key cities such as Madinah and Makkah. Rodgers deftly demonstrates how the combination of philosophical, economic, and social pressure on the people of Makkah would eventually force them to succumb to Muhammad’s call to the sole worship of Allah and to accept him as Allah’s last prophet.
