The Great War in the Middle East began with the invasion of the Garden of Eden, and ended with a momentous victory on the site of the biblical Armageddon. Almost incredibly, the whole story of this epic war has never been told in a single volume until now. In this important new history Roger Ford describes a conflict in its entirety: the war in Mesopotamia, which would end with the creation of the countries of Iran and Iraq; the desperate struggle in the Caucasus, where the Turks had long-standing territorial ambitions; the doomed attacks on the Gallipoli Peninsula that would lead to ignominous defeat; and the final act in Palestine, where the Ottoman Empire finally crumbled. He ends with a detailed description of the messy aftermath of the war, and the new conflicts in a reshaped Middle East that would play such a huge part in shaping world affairs for many generations to come.

About the Author:

Roger Ford, with a background in computing and information technology dating from the mid-1960s, is a relative late-comer to military history. He is the author of dozens of works in the field of military technology and weapons systems, including THE GRIM REAPER, a highly acclaimed account of the development and employment of the machine gun. He lives in rural southern France.

Review:

this is an engaging, well-written and comprehensive history of the Great War in the Middle East that would make a fine addition to any bookshelf SOLDIER
