Terrain:

But Charles Martel was not going to permit “all else being equal.”  Martel had a lot of accurate information regarding these Muslims whereas the Muslims had almost no information regarding whom these Franks were or what they were about.

            Martel’s heavy infantry was undefeated after years of combat.  They were tough, confident but not cocky, disciplined and each man carried upwards of seventy pounds of weapons and armaments.  All Martel lacked was the proper battle site.  He found what he was looking for, indeed, more than he could have hoped for.

            The “Hammer” found a low hill featuring a long glacis incline running up to the hill’s crest.  At the crest was a wooded area with an undulating edge whereby the tree line would creep slightly down the hill before turning back up again towards the crest.  Martel positioned his troops in a defensive line and was able to incorporate these spits of trees into his defensive battle line.  These trees would tend to break up the attacking cavalry line and maneuver the attacker into smaller, disorganized clumps easier for his men to surround and hammer.

            Ironically, “The Hammer” had found the perfect terrain to set up his anvil.

            In addition, these woods would not permit the Muslims to either encircle nor to envelope Martel’s defensive line which is always a considerable advantage cavalry has over infantry and/or static defensive positions.

            Because of this superb tactical advantage established by Martel almost the entire advantage of cavalry verses infantry was eliminated.

            After charging up the hill the Muslim horses would be winded if not exhausted.  The trees would splinter the attack and Martel’s tough guys would cut them to pieces.  This was the plan and one would be hard pressed to find a more effective piece of generalship anywhere in history.

Martel moved the Franks into position around the 1st of October.  The Muslims arrived around the 4th and the two sides glared at one another for the next six days.

CH Martel is an expert on the commonalities of Hitler, Stalin and Muhammad.  From the life and death of Hitler, to the life and Death of Muhammad with respect to Joseph Stalin, Satan’s Trinity is a compelling, interesting and historically relevant book that can be purchased at http://www.satanstrinity.com.  To reach the author for questions, information and interviews, please contact CH Martel at satanstrinity@gmail.com.
