Sword and Scimitar; written by Raymond Ibrahim, an American raised by Egyptian parents. It covers the 14 centuries of war between Islam and the West. It is labeled as military history but, as the author asserts, you cannot properly discuss the military side of this history without understanding the roots of Islam. I am on chapter 3 and I have learned a great deal about a topic which I thought I was well-read. Highly recommended. I will likely post a book report on this one when I have finished the whole book.
