The Battle of Tours was waged in AD 732. It was the decisive battle in which Charles Martel stopped the advance of the Muslim armies into Europe, after they had conquered all of Spain.
The Muslim leader, Emir Abd er Rahman was killed and the Muslims retreated to Spain, where it would take over 700 more years for the Christians to reconquer. Muslims refer to the Battle of Tours as the "Court of Martyrs". It is referred to as the Battle of Poitiers in France (in truth, the battle happened between Poitiers and Tours).
