Many historians view the Battle of Tours as a decisive moment in European history, stopping a major campaign into Gaul that could have rewritten the course of the Middle Ages. Fought on the tenth of October 732 between the Franks under Charles Martel and Islamic forces under Abd Al-Rahman, the Battle of Tours prevented a massive ensuing invasion of Europe by armies from the Islamic world, ensuring that Christianity remained the ruling power in Francia and her neighbouring kingdoms.
