Text below the fold:
October 10, 732 AD marks the conclusion of the Battle of Tours, arguably one of the most decisive battles in all of history.

A Moslem army, in a crusading search for land and the end of Christianity, after the conquest of Syria, Egypt, and North Africa, began to invade Western Europe under the leadership of Abd-er Rahman, governor of Spain. Abd-er Rahman led an infantry of 60,000 to 400,000 soldiers across the Western Pyrenees and toward the Loire River, but they were met just outside the city of Tours by Charles Martel, known as the Hammer, and the Frankish Army.
Now, did the Franks, primitive, uneducated, and unsophisticated by our modern standards, believe that Islam is "the religion of peace"? I think not.

Karen has a post about the real Dracula, who fought back against the Turks. Check it out!
