I have been trying to do some research on Islam's war tactics from about 7th century to about 10th century. This is just for my own info. I am looking primarily for how they pacified the occupied citizens and how they dealt with any insurgencies. The sources I find seem to indicate that most conquered people liked them as they were better than the current rulers. I find mostly opinion sites that show that Islam really did kill anyone who resisted them. Any help would be great. Also, if anyone wants to talk about their methods versus our methods that would be fine too.
