    This book is definitely one for your shelf, especially if you are into Islamic literature and the Sahaba. The books grips you from start to finish, detailing Khalid bin Waleeds actions. In truth, it is more for the person into reading on Islamic history rather than for someone looking for an in depth analysis of how exactly khalid bin waleed went about his tactical genius. It is more people of all ages, from your 12 year old to the 60 year old. the only negative thing I would say about this is the relationship between Khalid bin Waleed and Umar bin Khataab; in the book it is portrayed that both were mortal enemies. After completing the book, I researched their relationship further and came to learn that it wasn't in fact as bad as made out and when Khalid bin Waleed passed away, he had in fact left all his wealth to Umar and the ummmah.

    I had never heard of Khalid until I discovered this book on Amazon whilst researching the early years of Islam. I was trying to understand how Islam over ran the Persian and most of the Byzantine empires. The Army of Islam annihalated Persian and Roman armies vastly superior numerically owing to their commander's outstanding abilities in strategy and tactics. Khalid was physically and mentally tough, skillful in the use of weaponry and horsemanship as exhibited in the duels of champions that customarily preceded battles. He was also extremely violent. Lt General Akram's gripping account of an oustanding miliary leader also provides insight into the workings of the early Islamic community.

    An amazingly written and well researched book, the author has gone to great lengths of research and commitment to delivering a truly outstanding and amazing account of history. The Author personally visited each and every battlefield's and also learnt arabic so he could research through the earlier written acccounts of events in the archives of various arab countries. The author took a great deal of time visiting all the mentioned battlefield so he could determine what was actually possible and what could be the imagination of earlier historians.The book is a must read for anybody wanting to learn about the greatest general the world has ever seen with an amazing display of courage and faith in each and every battle. The campaigns spanned almost all the middle east and almost destroying 2 of the largest empires at the time (the roman and the persian). After i read this book i learnt that the book is actually part of the curriculum in military history in various miltary schools in asia.

    What is this rubbish that is supposed to be a historical tome on the early rise of Islam and Khalid Bin Al-Waleed. Shame on the author for such fantastical hero worship. Anyone with half a mind can see the untruths written are a slight on Islamic history. I doubt the author so much as left his house in order to research any of his so called "facts".The author thinks he is in the mind of "his hero" and thinks he can find battlefields that disappeared 1600 years ago. Dualling for hours in the middle of the day, giants who can't fit on horses and men who can shout and be heard for miles. More like X-men than fact!Islam has greater heroes than this murderer!!!This book is more akin to sci-fi/fantasy that a historical guide. William Shatner would be proud to have written this.Not only this, but the print is awful the paper poor and I don't know who translated it (if anyone) but the written English is that of a twelve year old.

    Subhanallah, amazing book, could not stop reading it, very detailed, well written and researched. A must read for any muslim or even non-muslim who likes an action-packed non-fiction book

    The level of historical accuracy and battlefield analysis in this book is amazing, and the writer has a wonderful entertaining narrative style. No doubt one of the best books in Islamic history ever. I am repeating this review on this edition as well to give a balance against the hater who is reviewing every edition of this book negatively.
