  • Before the Battle of Tours 
  • I am coming!!
  • During the Battle of Tours 
  • Our swords,spears and shields are gonna destroy them!! 
  • The Arabs who were Muslim soldiers in Spain intimidated those in the French Territory. 
  • During the Battle of Tours 
  • When 736 came Abd er Rahman who at time was the governor of Spain hiked over to Pyrenees. Some believe this was due to the fact that he wanted to end the unrest of his Northern border but most likely to ransack the Frankish Army. 
  • After the Battle of Tours 
  • (Historians are not absolute about the location of the battle but believe it began between Tours and Poitier where the rivers Clain and Vienne join.)The battle began by Martel setting up his army, defensively and in a square-like position, where he believed the Muslims could be seen. He packed the army tightly all suited up with swords, shields and spears. 
  • After the Battle of Tours 
  • Martel saved our religion!!
  • One time, when the Arabs decided to try to attack against the cavalry army the Frankish soldiers withstood the determined charges.  
  • After the battle, the Arab army retreated south over the Pyrenees. Martel also known as"Hammer" drove the Muslims away from the land between Arles and Avigon, to soon defeat them in another short battle near the River Berre near Narbonne.  
  • Martel's defeat of the Muslim was so important in the factor that it truly saved Christianity. If the Muslims were to win the battle then Christianity would not be able to spread through the community, instead it would of been the Islamic religion.
