About this title


The story of the Arab Legion is bound up with one of the most troubled areas in the world. It is the story of bedouin tribesmen, whose experience in war had once been harnessed by T. E. Lawrence, and of British officers whose love for and understanding of the Arabs enabled them to create a unique and highly effective army.<br />The Arab Legion proved its worth against Axis forces in Iraq and Syria in 1941 and later became the only Arab force to achieve a decisive win over the numerically superior Israeli army in the Arab-Israeli War of 1948.<br />Written by a former serving officer in the Legion, and including portraits of leading figures such as King Hussein, this book provides an intimate analysis of the formation, campaigns and heritage of a force that, having its roots in the twilight of the British Empire, went on to become the Jordan Arab Army.
