THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR VOLUME 1: The Battle For Khuzestan, September 1980-May 1982

THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR VOLUME 1: The Battle For Khuzestan, September 1980-May 1982
by Hooton, E.R., Tom Cooper, Farzin Nadimi

1-213571

The Iran-Iraq War was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 20th century and accidentally created the current nightmare of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. Includes 120 photos, 15 artworks, five maps, and four diagrams.

Uses materials obtained from US intelligence circles and British governmental archives. It provides a unique insight into a war which began through miscalculation and rapidly escalated into the longest conventional conflict in the post-Second World War era.

The first volume looks at the background and describes in detail how Saddam Hussein decided to invade, but hamstrung, the Iraqi Army to restrict its greatest success to a narrow strip of territory in Iran's southern province of Khuzestan. This left the Iraqis unable to either advance or withdraw, and exposed them to ever greater and more successful Iranian counter-strokes which drove them out in May 1982 in the ferocious Battle of Khorramshahr.
