In this book, El-Shazly has produced a definitive chronicle of a much neglected, but significant, aspect of the eight year-long Iran-Iraq war, the so-called Tanker War. The book explains the reason for the Tanker War, analyzes Iraqi and Iranian motives and strategies, and surveys the regional and international responses that this phase of the war generated. Drawing on a wealth of primary data, interviews with naval experts and other relevant actors, as well as a mass military and international security-related literature, the author weaves an impressive framework for understanding the Tanker War and also for drawing the lessons which must be learned from this episode if such a method of warfare is not to be repeated.
