The book discusses the times of wars and peace in Arabia during the of the Prophet s.a.w. The difference between this book and the rest is that it uses modern terms and current words and language. And, so, you feel like the author is not talking about faraway story in some faraway land. You feel like you can apply the story to now and the current situations of the coined War on Terror and the politics nowadays. It also helps one to understand how the situation were actually were during the time of the Prophet s.a.w and why the war had to be done, and why the timing of the war were the way it were. There’s also many justifications presented and rebukes on the statement that Islam was spread swords. A good book.
