The Compassionate Warrior : Abd el-Kader of Algeria Paperback
by Elsa Marston
A brilliant military strategist, superb horseman, statesman, philosopher, Muslim hero ...Emir Abdel Kader (1808-1883) was an international celebrity in his own time, known for his generosity and kindness even towards enemies.
Today he is recognized as one of the noblest leaders of the 19th century and a pioneer in interfaith dialogue.
This fascinating biography of the heroic Arab who led the resistance to the French conquest of Algeria, endured betrayal and imprisonment, and in 1860, in Syria, saved thousands of innocent people from mob violence brings a vital message for our times.
