In DeMartelly's new book,
Charles Martel and the Lance of Destiny
The Dark Age comes to life with its history intact in exciting novel
form. The facts of Martel's life read more like fantasy than history.
Of illegitimate birth and arrested for the murder of his half brother,
he escaped, deposed his father's widow, raised an army, conquered most
of northern Europe and turned back an Arab invasion of France. The book
includes two Arab defeats - Battle of Toulouse (725) and Battle of Tours (732).
While the Arab conquest of Spain is widely known, The Arab invasion of
France happened twice in the 700's. Both were major historical battles,
and both were major Christian Victories. Though details are
fiction, the book is historically accurate. A time-line and references
are included. Charles Martel and the Lance of Destiny is available
