Mahan in new Jihadist journal

It’s intriguing, unexpected and perhaps even significant that the first issue of the English-language Jihadist magazine “Jihad Recollections” from Al-Fursan Media should feature an illustration of Mahan’s classic The Influence of Sea Power to accompany its cover story on “The Predications of the Conquering of Rome”:

It would be interesting to see a bibliography of western historical and military texts referenced in jihadist literature…

The journal can be dowloaded here.

For an eschatological note on the same “Jihad Recollections” article, see the comment on The conquest of Romiyya / Rome in my Forensic Theology blog.
