His goal was to conquer the eastern Mediterranean and, from there, either invade India, or invade Europe through the backdoor-­from the east. His initial battles, for example at the Pyramids, were spectacular victories.

Before he even thought of rising, Edgar sprang at his companion, who, releasing the Arab boy's hands, grasped his knife, but before he could draw it, a blow, given with all Edgar's strength and the impetus of his bound forward, stretched him also on the ground, his knife flying from his hand.
