The Sword of Allah - Khalid bin Al-Waleed

This is an excellent book written by the late Lieutenant-General A.I. Akram of the Pakistan Army, in October 1969. The online version of the book resided at but more recently this website seems to have been discontinued. Given that the text of this book has been lost to the internet world since then, it has been our project at GrandeStrategy to salvage what could be found of the text online. Thus far we have managed to salvage a good portion of the book. We repost it here. Please note that we are doing this without any financial gain and as a service to all those that seek solace in this book from today's dark times, when the Islamic world lies in shambles, and news from Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Chechnya and Kashmir are heartbreaking and shameful. In such times this book reminds us of how glorious we once were, and perhaps how someday we can be again.
