Description

A new history of the long-overlooked WWII theater in Iran and Iraq, its unrecognized significance, and its impact on society and politics This dynamic history is the first to construct a total picture of the experience and impact of World War II in Iran and Iraq. Contending that these two countries were more important to the Allied forces' war operations than has ever been acknowledged, historian Ashley Jackson investigates the grand strategy of the Allies and their operations in the region and the continuing legacy of Western intervention in the Middle East. Iran and Iraq served as the first WWII theater in which the US, the UK, and the USSR fought alongside each other. Jackson charts the intense Allied military activity in Iran and Iraq and reveals how deeply the war impacted common people's lives. He also provides revelations about the true nature of Anglo-American relations in the region, the beginnings of the Cold War, and the continuing corrosive legacy of Western influence in these lands.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Steven Crossley's clear voice and impeccable enunciation are a most suitable match to Jackson's well-written account of the Second World War in Iraq and Iran. Since World War II was, after all, worldwide, many so-called side-show theaters, such the Middle East, received little, if any, notice. Jackson's long and well-written account details what happened in this area from 1941-45 and goes briefly into the postwar period. Crossley really is the consummate professional in general, and with this work in particular. His accent, inflection, enunciation, and overall expression are virtually flawless. He makes it all seem so easy and makes it a joy to listen to this long work. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
