In Soldiers of Faith, Ronald C. Finucane offers a unique and comprehensive exploration of the religious dimension of warfare from the dawn of history to the present. He examines the astonishingly varied ways in which religious belief and devotion have influenced military strategy, tactics, and behavior from the ancient world to the modern battlefield.

Finucane shows how the Crusades and the Muslim conquests were driven by religious fervor and how these conflicts were shaped by the clash of two radically different worldviews. He also considers the religious conflicts of the twentieth century, such as the Spanish Civil War and the Algerian War of Independence. In the process, he offers a valuable new perspective on some of the most significant conflicts in history.; 8vo; 247 pages.
