    Peter Crawford describes the eventful military history of the Near East during the 7th century CE, a pivotal period when the Eastern Roman Empire based in Constantinople was brought to the brink of extinction by Sassanid Persia, before Islam's adherents made spectacular advances and transformed the region. Using maps, plans and diagrams, Crawford analyses the strategies and tactics of these very different armies in the epic battles and sieges which 'brought about the end of the Ancient World'.
