         The Stirrup:

Some commentators rank the invention of the stirrup and its affect on mankind equal to that of the wheel and the printing press.  Both the printing press and the stirrup were invented in China with a prototype stirrup first appearing around 200 BC.  From there the idea made its way west arriving in Eastern Europe a thousand years later around the 8th Century AD.  (Meanwhile India had come up with its own version).  It would also have been picked up by the Muslim jihadists in the Eastern Mediterranean about the same time.  But did Rahman and his troops at Tours have the technology?  The sources are unclear about this.  Given the outcome of the battle, i.e., the Muslims lost, it would appear that they lacked this critical piece of equipment.

            However, they may have had a rudimentary form of the stirrup but lacked the “full-foot,” rigid stirrup; without the full-footed version the Muslim warriors would not have stayed in the saddle to fight but dismounted after they had made their initial charge.

            Amazingly, the full-footed stirrup was invented by none other than Charles Martel!

            Charles Martel, this brilliant strategist and tactician, prior to the Battle of Tours had already decided to develop a cavalry capability for his army.  He was currently involved in setting up horse farms around his realm to build up the necessary supply of horses needed for an effective cavalry unit.  After the Battle of Tours Martel was to meet the Muslims twice more in combat, at Narbonne he again took the Muslims by surprise when he showed up with a fully effective heavy cavalry.  The Muslims were left speechless (and defeated again) that he could develop such an effective cavalry so soon after Tours, where he had none.

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.
