About the Author
Fred Tiemann spent twelve years on active duty in the U.S. Navy after graduation from Annapolis. He received radar training from M.I.T. along with cruiser/destroyer duty, flight qualification, and aircraft carrier operations. He supervised the electronic development of the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye surveillance aircraft and consulted for a Defense institute on critical military technology.
In retirement he began studies of the Koran and other histories of Islam because of the Satanic Verses episode and other events. This led to his lectures for local Sarasota, Florida, community members. They persuaded him of the publics need for a clear understanding of the religion that was founded by Muhammad and the course it has taken in subsequent centuries.
