Tours
by Jerald Vohs




Overview -
In the year 732 AD, the new religion of Islam ruled throughout most of the known world. From Persia to Northern Spain, Muslim armies confidently marched forward with an irresistible force that had led to one hundred years of victories over all who opposed the spread of their militant faith. The warriors of Islam viewed all lands free of their control as the world of darkness, and a century of jihad to expand the light of Allah had known only success. The Pyrenees Mountains, an ancient barrier between Spain and France, had been breached by eighty thousand warriors under the command of Abd ar-Rachman, a brutal Muslim warlord determined to crush and subjugate all who opposed the spread of Islam. He led his unstoppable army into the heart of the nation of the Franks, leaving a trail littered with burning cities and mounds of corpses in his wake. One fabled warrior and his sons stood between the Christian lands of Western Europe and the wrath of the Muslim horde. His name was Charles, Mayor of the Palace to the king of the Franks. Quickly raising a small force of farmer-warriors, Charles moved south to defend the freedom and faith of his people. Outnumbered four to one by the Muslim host, the Franks knew they were marching to their deaths, but were determined to place their spears in the path of the enemy who came to destroy the faith and freedom the Christian warriors held so dear. Charles was aging, but his teenage sons, Carloman and Pepin, were prepared to lift high the banner of the Franks and lead their nation into the greatest battle since the fall of Rome. They led their warriors to a place where the Muslim invaders would have no choice but to fight them, the fields between Rachman and his next target: a city known as Tours.
