            The Battle of Tours in what is today southern France took place on Oct. 10, 732.  Some refer to the battle as the Battle of Poitiers some as Poitiers-Tours as the battle itself took place between these two towns.  The actual battle site has never been found. Some sources say the battle took place on Oct. 11.

The Forces:

The opposing forces at the battle were the Franks under Martel numbering some 30,000 infantrymen and the invading Muslim forces under the command of Abdur Rahman.  Information regarding the size of this Muslim force varies widely.  Some sources say the Muslim host was 80,000 strong.  Other sources say they numbered about the same as the Franks or slightly more, maybe 35,000.  A few sources maintain the Muslim force was a small reconnaissance-in-force sized operation.  Those who believe the latter do not place a number on this unit.

As a general rule troop number estimates regarding ancient warfare tend to be high.  It is unlikely the Muslim force was 80,000 strong.  Similarly, the smaller, unspecific number of a reconnaissance-in-force unit appears to be ill founded.  The Muslim forces were probably about the same size or somewhat larger than the Franks

            One thing everyone agrees on is the Muslim forces were a 100% cavalry and the Franks were 100% infantry.  This would give the Muslims a de facto two to one advantage over the Franks, all else being equal; such is the advantage of cavalry over infantry.
