Best Answer

An important one. In happened at Tours, France. Europe was in the darkest of the dark ages, very disorganized and poor. Islam, a hundred years after their Prophet's death, was a vigorous and aggressive army, carrying all before it. Muslims conquered the native peoples of North Africa, swept through Spain, destroying the Chirstian kingdoms there, and plunged deep into France, set on conquest of all Europe.

At Tours, they were met by a determined force of Franks, led by Charles Martel ("The Hammer") and turned back. It was the "high-water mark" for Islam in the West, although it would be another seven and a half centuries (untill 1492) that they were finally expelled from Spain.
