The History of Islam by Akbar Shah Najeebabadi is the most comprehensive book on Islamic History in English, written by a Muslim, as far as I know. I haven't read it but a few pages are available through Google Books. The lectures of Bashar Shala go all the way to the late Bani Abbas era and they are not matched by any book written so far (in English). Some even come with slides. Although not a book, the site History of Islam goes into detail and covers the full 1400 years. The biography of Salah ad-Din by Dr. Ali Muhammad Sallabi takes you to the late 6th century A.H. This page from Dar us Salaam has biographies of: Abu Dawood Imam Ahmad At-Tirmidi Az-Zuri Imam Bukhari Ibn al-Qayyim Ibn Majah Imam Muslim Sa'eed ibn al Musayyab Sufyan ibn Uyaynah Sufyan Ath-Thawri Imam Shawkani al-Albani I haven't read any of them but they average around 200+ pages each (432 for Shawkani!), so I'd imagine they include a lot of background historical information. Atlas of the Islamic Conquests covers Military History until Uthmani times while Commanders of the Muslim Army doesn't seem to go beyond the era of the Sahaba. You can read it at Kalamullah. Deeper Roots by Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick is a brief work on the history of Muslims in the Americas. Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarkpuri touches on the history of Mecca and Medina while Al-Quds takes you through the history of Jerusalem.
