Synopsis: A critical study of the fifty-year conflict between Islam and Chistianity for control of the Mediterranean discusses the decisive sixteenth-century battles at Malta and Lepanto that permanently ended Muslim expansion in the region and looks at the roles played by Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, pirate Hayrettin Barbarossa, Pope Pius V, and General Don John of Austria.
