The Leadership of Muhammad: A Historical Reconstruction

Author: Joel Hayward Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/07/2021

‘The Leadership of Muhammad: A Historical Reconstruction’ by Joel Hayward is an insightful and intellectual look into the ways in which the Prophet Muhammad was a great and successful leader. Looking not only at the theological texts, Hayward references early Arabic sources to examine the ways that Muhammad excelled during his twenty-three years as a leader. There are traits mentioned throughout the book that I’m sure would be beneficial to modern leaders (setting an example, good delegation, being approachable to discuss alternative ideas when appropriate) however the author is careful not to explore the Prophet's actions in relation to modern concepts, thought processes and standards. I thought that this book was authoritative and informative and I think that it would appeal widely to those with an interest in history as well as more specifically in Islamic studies. I found the writing clear and accessible throughout, making it easy to comprehend for non-academic purposes. I also liked the way that the book was structured. Each chapter has a clear focus, whether it be Muhammad’s Military leaderhsip, strategic vision or his leadership through diplomacy, with a great deal of detail and plenty of references to extant sources. This book is clear and concise and educated me on the history of Islam as well as the successes of the Prophet Muhammad and the leadership qualities that led to such success. Whether you’re looking for a book of History, Islamic studies, or an interesting look into great leadership, ‘The Leadership of Muhammad: A Historical Reconstruction’ has plenty to offer.

Stopped at Stalingrad

Stopped at Stalingrad

Author: Joel Hayward Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/04/1998

By the time Hitler declared war on the Soviet Union in 1941, he knew that his military machine was running out of fuel. In response, he launched Operation Blau, a campaign designed to protect Nazi oilfields in Romania while securing new ones in the Caucasus. All that stood in the way was Stalingrad. Here, Joel Hayward chronicles Luftwaffe operations during that campaign, focusing on Hitler's use of the air force as a tactical rather than strategic weapon in close support of ground forces. He details the Luftwaffe's key role as flying artillery , showing that the army relied on Luftwaffe support to a far greater degree than has been previously revealed and that its successes in the East occurred largely because of the effectiveness of that support. Hayward shows the poorly conceived strategies of Hitler, Goering and others in Berlin doomed the efforts of air commander Wolfram von Richthofen, a resolute leader attempting to come to grips with an increasingly impossible situation. By reconsidering the campaign in the light of a wider body of documentary sources and analyzing many previously ignored events, Hayward offers military historians and general readers a more complete understanding of the Battle of Stalingrad and its impact on World War II.
